THIS evening I headed down to what has become a regular haunt of mine over the last few weeks in Moot Hall to watch the Moot House Players’ latest production. ‘Post Mortem’ by Brian Clark, himself a former member of the theatre company, was the play, and I hoped it follow in the recent successes of previous recent productions of ‘The Importance of Being Earnest’ among others.

Thankfully, I was not disappointed. Clark’s play focuses on the character of Helen, who arrives at the office of her boss to find a tape, saying he will not be in. However a number of business crises develop and Helen is never off of the phone whilst her boss remains contactable, before she discovers the exact reason why she has not heard from her employer.

Michael Branwell’s direction of the performance is sublime, allowing each individual to develop their characters accordingly. One whom does this particularly well is leading lady Kerry Rowland. After a stellar performance as Cecily in ‘The Importance of Being Earnest’ she follows this up displaying a character with such depth and precision that we almost expect her to continue like it when we bump into her after the performance.

Similarly, the other cast members are on point, with Dan Powell, Henrietta Branwell and both Michael and Rosemary Caswell ensuring ther performance keeps you engaged and on the edge of your seat throughout.

The Moot House Players are incredibly proud to be given the honour of performing this production in Abtenau, and rightfully so.
