it’s a dirty job, but someone’s got to do it


The Cleansing of Constance Brown takes to the stage this evening at the AEHarris factory, Birmingham. Stan’s Cafe begin a three week run of the full-sized ‘7-door version’ of the show which features new cast member Amy in the role first created by Jan (and more recently performed by Alex). Such is the nature of the company’s later work, that recasting can happen with only a day or two’s re-rehearsal. Thus Jake (left on the left) has learned the role created by Andy Watson (and subsequently interpreted by Gareth Brierley, Nick Tigg and Ray Newe!) whilst Jack (right on the left) is now playing the ‘Jake’ role. I’m pretty much sticking to the ‘Graeme’ role but switching to ‘Gerard’ for one night only for a St. Patrick’s Night special when Gerard is unavailable and Chris is hopefully stepping back into my boots. Given that Constance is already such a complex machine, the recasting adds additional spice and reinforces the ‘character-as-functional’ in the piece.

OMG! There are still some tickets left! You can book you seat through this Link to MAC Box Office
