Spring Production 2014

Directed by Alan Copsey

Tom Stoppard’s Rough Crossing was our Spring Production for 8-12 April 2014.

This light-hearted comedy centres round the writing and rehearsal of a Broadway play on board a transatlantic cruiser.

Wordplay and romantic and nautical misunderstandings are rife.

Andre Previn wrote the music for the songs.

Cast list:

IVOR – egotistical leading man who lusts after Natasha – Rob Hatherley

NATASHA – temperamental leading lady – Leafy Scott

ADAM – composer who is madly in love with Natasha – Jamie Potts
GAL – writer and producer – Paul Pridmore

TURAI – writer and producer – Tony Clark

DVORNICHEK – ship's steward – Allan Brown


Barry Jarvis designed the magnificent set with help from Merlin.
