Colyton Theatre Group - The Actress
Colyton Theatre Group are proud to present The Actress, by Peter Quilter, directed by Jeff Hutchinson, featuring familiar faces and new in a beautifully cast production.
The last show is always a very strange affair. Its like a party, a great buzz of excitement. But then each actor will leave, with laugher still ringing in the air and a cheery wave. Then it stops. And as you watch each of them walk down the street, they look terribly lonely. Thats the thing about it, you see. After all the applause and elation, we walk home alone. And thats who actors are the happiest, saddest people youll ever meet.
The actress dramatises the events backstage as a colourful, complicated actress makes her emotional farewell performance. Various people from her life invade her dressing room to say their goodbyes, declare their love, roar with laughter, spit insults, grab a final embrace, and renew old battles.
