The trip to the Minack theatre on June 26 provided all these, and much more. It was a glorious day, the A30 wasn’t TOO crowded, and the sea as a backdrop to the performance glistened a deep blue; the only drawback – no dolphins!
The adaptation of Jane Austen’s ‘Sense and Sensibility’ was fast moving and very true to text and character. (Some of us thought that Mr Willoughby could have been a little younger and rather more dashing, but hey, I guess we all had Greg Wise at the back of our minds!) The Janus Theatre Company coped remarkably with the limitations of the stage, and they really made the most of Jane Austen’s touches of drama, humour and ridiculousness. It was a performance to remember. We all really enjoyed it.
Thanks to Jane for another great trip.
Can we go again, please?
