Hey guys - can anyone help my struggling memory...i am trying to remember the title of a play that was performed by Doha Players sometime around 2015/2016...the setting of the play was in a house where there was a power cut, and everytime the power was off, the lights on stage were on, and everytime the power came on, the lights on stage went off. I think it might have had something to do with a burglary? I had a newborn around this time and it has clearly messed with my head! Does anyone know the play I am talking about?!?
One of my dreams would be to have a Doha Players reunion! Wherever you are in the world, it would be joyous to all get together again someday! Be safe everyone!
A journal article I co-authored with professor Alan Weber.
My half is about the expatriate Doha Players theatre group -
“Perhaps it is because the British lack a distinct national costume, a national dance or a national cuisine that when they find themselves far from their damp little island, they resort to dressing up and quickly build a stage where they can act like someone else. Although the cause of this behaviour is debatable, it is a fact that wherever British civilians have gone in the world, be it the American east-coast, Africa, India or Australasia, soon they were putting on make-up and dressing in the most outlandish manner for the delight of not only themselves but also the wider community. I suggest for the British, when living as immigrants in alien lands, theatre has become their cultural centre. “

Qatari actor Adel al Al Ansari is a big believer of following one's dreams and doesn't believe in giving up. He believes that if someone wants something they should aim for it. He did, and he got where he wanted to be! Find out more about him in this #WhosWhoInQatar!

Rehearsals are underway for Blue Stockings by Jessica Swale. 1896, Girton College, Cambridge, the first college in Britain to admit women. The Girton girls study and match their male peers grade for grade. Yet, when the men graduate, the women leave with nothing but the stigma of being a 'blue stocking' - an unnatural, educated woman. Eventually the Senate succumbed to pressure and Cambridge awarded women the right to graduate. It was 50 years later in 1948!

Gone but not forgotten Cath and Paul.

08/10/2020

Forwarded from costume designer Cynthia Tulip "I'll never forget you".
"I was tidying up files and this stopped me in my tracks and I wish to share it with you.
Catherine "Cath" was the first DP member to greet me when a I arrived as a volunteer for Les Mis, offering help in any way.
I then had the opportunity to work along side her more closely for Peter Pan as the incredible Tinkerbell (on skates!).
In every show we volunteered on together, I never heard her complain, not once. Instead, she was a positive force to be reckoned with. It was a joy to work with her. She was beautiful, no, gorgeous inside and out. Oh and her SMILE!
Miss you..."
