After a couple of weeks without rehearsals and line learning now is possibly the time to reflect on our production of Cargo. Everybody kept saying it will be alright on the night, do you know what ? It was. We had packed houses on both nights and a darkened stage floor and the cast and crew being dressed in black added to the seriousness of our production. When we had finished the last performance there seemed to be a quiet realisation of what we had just achieved. We had over two nights been able to put across the horrors of slavery then and now and even in this present day it is difficult to imagine that slavery not only exists in many forms but is flourishing.
Thank you Simon Utting for brilliant and understanding direction.
Love and peace
