Tryst’s Someone Who’ll Watch Over Me
UK Tour reached the end of the line at the Welwyn Festival
with a second place (earning the Roy Brewer Cup) and another
Best Actor award (the Welwyn Award) for Brian Pattreson. He
has now bought a special display cabinet from IKEA for all
the silverware he has deservedly picked up this year.
President Frank T. Murray said: "The tour has been terrific.
The cast and crew have been incredible, as always. Humour
and sense of purpose, those old Tryst standbys, have prevailed
all the way from East Kilbride to Welwyn via Falkirk and Felixstowe.
"The performance at Welwyn showed everyone at the top
of their game. It was an exceptional dramatic achievement."
On the tour there were many highlights: Essex Girls, 'geezerbirds',
a modest team bus, Romanian waitresses, and late-night kebab
shops featured prominently on the Felixstowe leg, while Welwyn
was dominated by Elen Clerk's backward-facing taxis, John
Lewis hats, kilts, chinese food and a canal boat ride to the
Tryst newcomer, Stage Manager Brian A. Allan added: "There
is no truth in the scurrilous rumour that a Felixstowe hotel
balcony was trashed one night by our tired and emotional cast.
The wood was rotten in any case."
Tryst now slope off for the summer break but will return
