When injury forced the club to
withdraw After Liverpool from the EK Rep
One-Act Festival, it could have meant a rather short final
night of theatre in East Kilbride.
Fortunately the club had a backup plan and, at half past
nine on the Saturday morning, the cast and crew of Someone
Who'll Watch Over Me were roped (or should that be
"chained") in to fill the void.
And a good thing too, for not only were all three actors
nominated in the best actor category, but the team captured
the East Kilbride Arts Council Trophy for second place and
plan to hold it hostage until next year.
Tryst President Frank T. Murray added, "It's always
marvellous to see an audience react to a new production -
but there's more to come.
"We stage the full length version in Falkirk later this
month, and I for one can't wait to see if they get out alive.
The hostages I mean - not the audience."
