Last Train to Nibroc
Went to see Last Train to Nibroc by Arlene Hutton over at The Orange Tree.
I didn't know anything about this play or writer, but was really charmed the show.
It was directed by Katie Henry, who graduated form our MA in Directing the year before I joined St.Mary's - and she did a brilliant job, coaxing performances of gentle humour from her two actors who expertly mined beautiful and subtle rhythms from the text.
Andy Brunskill, one of our third year undergraduates, has just been picked up by Sam Walters to work as a trainee director at the theatre for the forthcoming year. If Katie's work is anything to go on it's a great place to hone your craft. We're dead proud of him.
