I'm back at Orange Tree Theatre for a few days, but it's not a fancy Muswell Hill kitchen this time. This time we're going back to the First World War for 'The Conquering Hero' by Allan Monkhouse.
The costumes are gorgeous, and there's an awful lot of them. A cast of eleven, most of whom have three costumes each = some very full dressing rooms!
We start the tech and dress tomorrow, and the show opens on Wednesday. It's a really great play, I watched a run through on Friday and the writing and acting are spot on.
I'm really excited to see them all in costume tomorrow, it makes a huge difference when it's a period play.
