‘The Lords Of Creation’ Performance – 10 December 2009


I have just come off the stage from the show I have been rehearsing since September. Called The Lords Of Creation, it’s one of the most challenging productions I have ever been involved in. We all knew that there would be problems with lines, and – sure enough – there were a couple of issues. But we recovered ourselves, and overall; a play which was very nearly cancelled just two weeks ago, was highly impressive to the sell-out audience.

The show is about an ‘X Factor’ style panel of judges, who must choose 6 species out of the millions on earth to survive, while all of the others will perish. In the end, after hearing the final twelve’s stories, the God realises that no species can survive without the other.

As one of the ‘judges’ or ‘Wise Ones’ as they are known in the play, I had to – along with all of the other members of the cast – wear makeup. If you’re interested, I’ve attached a picture of me as a ‘Wise One’ to this post.

Anyway, we pulled it out of the bag, and the audience were wowed.

Until next time,

Andrew 🙂
