Return of The Cardinals


By lunchtime on Day#1 we knew that the warm, comfortable facilities of the Rep rehearsal space just wouldn’t cut it. It wasn’t that the luxuriousness of the green room had blunted our purpose but rather a lack of ceiling height finally put paid to the idea. So back to the ‘Australia’ room at AE Harris we returned, the place which gave birth to this show 14 months ago, before its official premiere at Domaine d’O, Montpellier.

The Cardinals is being unpacked and painstakingly reassembled for a series of performances at Warwick Art Centre and The Drum, Plymouth. Trying to unlock the mystery of how we delivered the show is something of a challenge though, even with the aid of video documentation, because it is in the dimly-lit backstage areas that the real action is taking place.

In the above pic, prop-builder/stage manager Harry Trow muses over an elusive item, while James, Gerard and ….er,… Harry continue to hunt for it.
