Tonight is the final rehearsal of Incident at Vichy before we go into performance tomorrow. It's the last opportunity to iron out the final kinks in the show, and as such is a nervously exciting part of the process.
This is the biggest production I have been in up to this point in my career, and the publicity for it is going into overdrive, with a feature on BBC Arts Extra on Monday adding to the various press coverage. I have been featured in today's Tyrone Constitution, and likely tomorrow's Ulster Herald, if all goes to plan.
The cast has been tremendous up to this point, and will no doubt continue as we go to performance. They are, in order of appearance;
Lebeau - Myself
Bayard - Tom Dart
Marchand - Jack Geary
Police Guard - Robert Render
Monceau - Glenn Hamill
Gypsy - Christian Jackson
Waiter - Vincent Tsang
Boy - Michael Burkes
Major - Brian Kennedy
First Detective - Rory McCadden
Old Jew - Denis McAlinden
Second Detective - Tucker Larkham
Leduc - Matt Faris
Police Captain - Ciaran Moore
Von Berg - Gerald McCann
Professor Hoffman - Mickey Mason
Ferrand - Samuel Mahadea
Prisoners - Janine Kennedy, Caroline Brennan, Peggy O'Neill, Sharon Curran
The show runs from tomorrow (Thursday 4th November) until Saturday in the Crescent Arts Centre. Book your tickets early to avoid disappointment.
