When Festival Director Michael Wood was enthusiastically spruiking this event I must confess I was intrigued but a little wary. A small group of amateur actors, some professionals, no overarching theme for some ten minute plays. What could possibly go wrong?
Happily, I was delighted with the opening night show. It was a delightful, completely varied programme of unexpectedly competent works.
As a judge and critic I am not allowed to allocate favoured works (until the audience and judges choices are announced on April 8), however I will say that I was very pleased to see such burgeoning real talent onstage.
This is a month of exciting theatre.
Go! You will be so glad you did.
