Sadly the tour has come to an end with an extraordinary evening at the Pavilion in Weymouth. A packed house saw Jane McKell, Phoebe Sharman, Sorcha Martin and Eltjo DeVries deliver my words with intensity and commitment. They made beautiful stage pictures as I had directed them but then made the play their own. Thanks also due to Kevin Butcher for the projection and to Annette Sumption for such a brilliant set that reflected exactly my vision of a 1920s painting by Harold Williamson and Sophie Fretwell for the puppets. This was probably the most charged play I have ever written, it demanded everything from those taking part and from the audience. I am very proud or their achievement.
