Jonathan Livingston Seagull
This was a new venture for us at "Everybody's Reading Festival' in that it wasn't a play but indeed most appropriately a 'rehearsed reading'. With an interval the actual reading took about 1hr 20 minutes, a long time for a cast to concentrate as an ensemble to present the piece. The quality of their reading of the book was quite exceptional and the audience thoroughly enjoyed this iconic little piece and this was demonstrated by their enthusiastic applause at the end. Te reading was supported by a series of images illustrating the story projected on a back projection screen behind the performers and use where appropriate of music taken from a piece entitled 'The Lonesome Boatman' by Finbar Fury.
Superb! Amazing! were comments from members of the audience.
