Art on Tour

Two down, one to go. Tryst’s production of Art leaps boundlessly from strength to strength.

The ball started rolling with an exhilarating performance at Falkirk Town Hall. The local audience were treated to an absorbing study of friendship played against a colourful palette of comedy – and of course, the magnificent white painting.

Adjudicator Ron Nicol praised an outstanding production showcasing brilliant teamwork. It is rumoured he also detected a “hint of the balletic” at times.

One week later, the set was packed into a van and our very own dynamic duo set off on a 900 mile round trip to Felixstowe. There were many highlights of this journey: watching a caravan part company with its wheel on the M74, the uplifting sound of Leonard Cohen, and some expert van-based horticulture from Jimmy Titchmarsh. Sales of Yorkie bars soared as a result.

Meanwhile, our remaining team members jumped on a flight to Stanstead and hired a luxury team bus to make it to the Spa Pavilion. National consumption of Yorkies was unaffected.

Thanks to theatre staff and festival organisers (especially those who went without their sofa for a day) the technical setup went without a hitch. The performance that followed was no different and adjudicator Tony Rushforth was very complimentary about the delightful ensemble playing, effortless scene changes and highly effective sound and light.

A trip to the local Chinese restaurant after the show introduced bemused staff to Scottish national dress. Many handshakes and photos ensued. Sgian dhu!

Tryst now pack the van for a trip to Welwyn Garden City on the 12th of June. Yorkies at the ready! - Tryst Theatre is a registered Scottish charity, No SC003303
