“Joe Egg” adjudicator’s report received

A Day in The Death of Joe Egg is the troupe’s entry in this years Wellington Theatre Federation full length play competition.  The adjudicator seemed to agree with the audiences’ reactions; she ended her report saying:

” Congratulations on a fine performance; we went away satisfied we had seen a very well produced play.”

“This was a tight and energetic performance. It moved along at a good pace with lots of response from the audience. Fluid shifts from one scenario to another kept the audience focussed. Humour was played well allowing the darkness of despair and uncertainly to emerge. We saw the tragedy, we felt the pain. Strong team-work was evident and the set was workable. The play is wordy but you managed to keep the performance to about 2 hours. Overall you met all the challenges this play offered.”
