Oh good, a bunch of writers with food!

Always be on the lookout for strange characters

Out of Pocket - a Celebration, review and photos

Gordon MacNish and Helen Brett delighted an audience of OOTA writers and guests at our recent Out of Pocket Celebration. Gordon began by telling us about the eight years spent working with the theatre, moving from one venue to another, the seasons' highs and lows. We were also privileged to have Gordon and Helen perform their last play - Hello Cocky - the sequel. (You can see a video of their performance on this site). So a hearty congratulations to both Helen and Gordon for their unfailing stint in what appeared to be a lot of work. However, to the end, showing much dedication to the craft, the performers, the plays and the sheer love of being part of local theatre. We would also like to thank Vivienne Glance who introduced our guests on the day, giving us some insight into how actors & writers were very grateful for the chance (in the early days of their careers) to perform or submit plays to Pocket Theatre. Well done! - photos by Lucy Czierwiec and Helen Hagemann (video), 8th June 2012.
