Three in a Row

Three short plays - Directors Course

directed by Christopher Hall, Brian Whitaker & Michael Patterson

Performed at

Latimer Street


10th to 11th October 1980

The Production

This production is essentially “green room” designed to give potential directors the opportunity to work with acting and technical colleagues hopefully as a prelude to full length productions at some future date. Therefore it is important to each of the directors concerned to have constructive comments on their work, and for this purpose the Saturday performance will be followed by an appraisal by three ‘critics’ with opportunity for audience participation. Aside from the workshop element, this performance is part of the Maskers’ 1980/81 programme. As such we hope it will prove an extremely enjoyable evening’s entertainment for audience and participants alike.
