The Ruby Curse is lifted – Nemesia Moriarty captured!

The Curse of the Rajasthani Ruby is lifted and Fanny Golightly realises who she really is! 

If you didn’t see our play in April 2017 at the Tithe Barn in Bishops Cleeve here are a few  more photographs taken at our dress rehearsal – these ones are in colour too!

I have the Ruby – I have the power!

Cooee ducks!

 

Come quietly – I have men in the street so you can not escape!

Is there a secret message there?

 

 

Out of my way Rozzer or I’ll stick ‘yer! (OK so this one is black and white)

The lads down at The Bell.

What marble is to the Sculptor – education is to the mind!

We want the Ruby of course!

The Cast

They left me on the steps of an orphanage.

My dear Lady – come in and recover your equilibrium.

Now – we don’t want any of those things people speak into – they speak back!

 

 

 

Always got time for the law Inspector!

Hummph!                        

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

It’s that turban again!

Oh you don’t know who she is do you?

Where is Holmes when you need him?

Steampunk Sherlock at Tesco!

Saturday the 1st April saw some of our intrepid cast of ‘The Curse of the Rajasthani Ruby’ all dressed up (it’s why some of them joined I’m sure) to publicise the play which is on 21st and 22nd April at the Barn.  See our ‘Next Productions’ page for more details.

The play is set in the 1890s but we have added a Steampunk element to the costume and some of the set to give it a twist.  It has been fun and we even went to a Steampunk Spectacular held at the Swindon Steam Museum where we met some fellow Steampunk enthusiasts.

Some photos below can give you just a flavour of what to expect with our costume but we have saved the best for the performance!

Scottish Evening 2017

Scottish Evening at The Barn February 2017

Well our ninth Scottish Evening was a resounding success with our Scottish host Brian on fine form, The Ghillies excellent as ever with some Scottish songs old and new and dancers jigging and reeling round the floor with at times astounding accuracy.  Many of our audience had of course been before and knew the drill being well schooled by now in the dances on offer throughout the evening.  The refreshments again proved popular and the haggis encouraged cries of ‘more please’.  There was nothing ‘dreich’ about the celebration of all things Scottish and our piper did us proud as always and enjoyed toasting the haggis with a ‘wee dram’.  Roll on our tenth Scottish Evening!

The Gay Gordons – just getting warmed up.

The Pride of Erin – the one where you try not to trip over your own feet.


 

Edinburgh Rock – right hand to your partner!

Some of the band – Alistair, Tony and Gillie

Popular as ever there seemed to be more bottles in the raffle this year. Hmm

Even a Laird needs to communicate it seems!

 

 

More dancing

The Laird from the Isle of Aaron.

Demonstrating those dances was energetic to say the least…

Welcoming the haggis

The pie-eyed Piper – a deserved refreshment!
