I read the names but sorry to say, don't know who they are. Anyone enlighten me? I love this play but I'm not that keen on PK so not sure whether to bother if the rest of the cast, hardworking actors all I'm sure, are not top notch

I wonder if they will play it in three acts, or perhaps play the four act version but as two acts. I'm directing a production of the play at the same time after Christmas and will try to reinstate the missing scene with Grisbsy ...certainly we'll rehearse it or read it at least to see how it balances and flows. If it doesn't work I'll happily lose it it. But I'll definitely do it in two acts - three acts make my heart sink these days.

Re-instate a scene? I've always thought the show is too long anyway!  dry.gif
