Fond farewell to The Drowning Girls

Alumnae Theatre Company’s production of The Drowning Girls closed on Saturday night to another packed house at the end of an incredible run – and I was lucky to be able to see it one last time before our closing night celebration at Betty’s and the inevitable set strike the following day.

I have to say, this was a sad strike for me. For some reason, I’m going to miss this set a lot. More paint under my fingernails today, but I don’t mind.

Love this window. Up centre of the stage, it was blacked out with a curtain for the show.

  1. Thanks for the lovely pix. Always sad to see a set come down, isn’t it? Even worse to be the one dismantling – it feels so wrong to rip it apart! Theatre is so fleeting….
