Friends of Ludlow Arts Festival
Thank you! What an amazing Festival - What else in on?
A wonderful evening...
The production by The Lord Chamberlain's Men was as good as it gets – seven very gifted actors (all male) playing all 17 parts... and the biggest part is for a girl!
The special treat for Friends of Ludlow Arts Festival was a pre-performance talk and back-stage tour (top photo) – Isaac Stanmore (Rosalind) and Christopher Rowland (Celia) explained how they 'trained' to be girls: their 'observations' of how girls walk, sit, stand and use their arms, hands and heads made them quite believable (middle pic).
And thanks to Bentley's Wine Merchants andThe Ludlow Hamper Co for offering Friends special discounts on wines and hampers to make a pre-play picnic a great start to a wonderful evening – plus thanks also to theGreen Café for staying open.
The good news is TLCM will be back next year with Romeo and Juliet – please put 13 August 2014 in your diary! The Millennium Green proved to be a perfect, open air river-side setting for Shakespeare (bottom pic).
