This has brought back so many memories... In the summer of 1967 I played Elma in what I think was David Gilmore's first production at the Watermill, 'Canaries Sometimes Sing.
I remember the incredible heat in the dressing room and having to apply body make up to hide the sunburn... very out of keeping for a 1920s period piece and how terrifyingly close the audience seemed on the opening night.
I remember also there being a huge crop of Sorrel and all of use being heartily sick of having sorrel quiche for supper every night.
It was a wonderful theatre, a lovely company and a very happy memory.
What a lovely message and memory. Some might say not much has changed - the dressing rooms are still hot & the audience very close!It's always lovely to hear from people who have worked here so thank you so much for getting in touch.
