Earlier this year I agreed to direct Roger Hall’s “Book Ends” for the Greytown Little Theatre. Why this play? I am still not sure what drew me to it, partly I think the challenge of dealing with older gentlemen, as generally I spend my days with the young.
I have had a ball working with these lovely chaps over the last few months, but it has been a hectic year. This is my 8th large theatre project this year, outside of teaching that is.
But, it is funny. And I would like to think we have put a unique spin on the play. It opens tonight (Wednesday 22 November, 2017) to what I hope is a packed and adoring crowd.
Part of what I was hoping involved bringing the older generation together with the younger generation alongside… as people are people, and I would like them to both see each other as valuable.
