Today I had coffee with my friend Clare. After coffee this morning we walked over to the theatre where her current show is about to open. On the walk back we past a very old cemetery with rustic iron twisted gates, the kind you would see on Hocus Pocus. On one side of the cemetery wall is a big modern take on a Victorian mansion.....very cool especially on Halloween day.
It also reminded me of Arsenic and Old Lace where the Brewster sisters lived in an old home in a graveyard in Brooklyn.
Here is a sneak peek at The Beauty Queen of Leenane. Click here for show times and tickets.
Enjoy reading my encounters in and around theatre set design.
