Member from 1986 to present
I joined Players in the mid 1980s as a member of the 'back stage' team dealing with props. I have always strived for authenticity, for example, a real bow and arrow for Camelot, loaned by a Hillingdon archery club. Creature props have been made but I did buy a whole conga eel for Darling I'm Home. Between rehearsals it snoozed in my freezer and was awoken when required! As many plays require various drinks I have become quite adept at making 'sherry”, 'brandy”, 'whisky” etc. not, I should add, to the connoisseur's taste. I enjoy the great camaraderie backstage.
