A masterpiece of acting
and directing (said GoDA)
Richard Delahaye as Ron.
Mike Galikowski as Bill.
Directed by Ruth Cattell.
Thanks to everyone who supported our one-act festival play - Bookends - since we first performed it at the Worcestershire Theatre Festival in March 2023.
Here's where it's been on its travels ...
We were selected for and showcased in the
National Drama Festival.
Lighthorne One Act Drama Festival
Semi final of the AETF
We came second
Quarter Final of the All England Theatre Festival
Worcestershire Theatre Festival
We came second
What's the plot?
Ron and Bill haven't met up for three weeks: Bill has been in Scarborough, reliving his honeymoon and Ron, having escaped from his old people's home, has been living it up on the ferry to Amsterdam.
Who has been involved?
Richard Delahaye played Ron, with Mike Galikowski as Bill.
The play was directed by Ruth Cattell, with the sound track (birds, dogs, waves, seagulls ... you name it, it's there!) devised by Martin Ward.
Many others within the NKP team have been involved in bringing it to life, both in rehearsal and on our festival tour: in particular Ian Brannon, Frank Latham, Oli Smith, Gary Cattell, Di McCann, Hilary Vendy, Richard Renton.
And the support we've received along the way from those watching has been wonderful. Thank you!
Winning the Lighthorne Theatre Festival has meant that we've been able to donate a sum of money to a charity of our choice.
We chose Side by Side Theatre Company Stourbridge: a performing arts group for adults with learning disabilities.
