A Walking Theatre Whirlwind Weekend

And despite Britain being caught in the dying thralls of Hurricane Bertha, TWTC has manned and womaned up and given our deliciously soggy best. Midsummers Nights Dream at Dunollie on Friday night was brilliant and the sturdy cast and audience were rewarded with Prosecco and cappuccino – thanks Dunollie! Today we reach Shettleston with our brilliant ‘Commonwealth Kitchen’, Alice McKerrow and Steph Falls, do what TWTC does best entertain, whatever the weather. Thanks to our amazing actors and our brilliant audiences… Tomorrow Kirkintilloch, for WWII Flying Kitchen.

Off we go to Dunollie, HURRAH!

This Friday night for some Midsummer Nights Dreaming… Director and ‘Puck’, Sadie Dixon-Spain, caught this shot in rehearsal yesterday, of Oberon (Colin Little) and Titania (Karen Bartke) and…well, we might have to leave the Basset & his cameo at home!


A ‘Conference of the Faeries’ at TWTC HQ!

Today, the air around TWTC HQ was full of the word of Shakespeare, as our fantastic acting team comprising of Karen Bartke, Rebecca Bloom, Sadie Dixon-Spain, and Colin Little, were rehearsing TWTC’s adaption of ‘Midsummer Nights Dream’, in preparation for this Friday’s performance at Dunollie. Tickets still available, so grabs yours while you can, and join Annie Fairbottom on a magical (and somewhat chaotic) Hen Party like no other!
