Day 232 - An Actor's Choice No. 11
Continuing our thread of actors we love, talking about plays they love...
Here's Pitlochry Festival Theatre Ensemble's Jesse Fox, on his love of Peter Nichols ‘A Day in the Death of Joe Egg’ – which was first staged at the Citizen’s Theatre in Glasgow in 1967. It later transferred to London and Broadway where it picked up three Tony nominations and one award.
Like us, Pitlochry Festival Theatre started their online series #PFTLightHopeJoy at the start of lockdown, many days ago... It was created to bring light, hope and joy to the people of Scotland and beyond.
'Like keeping ourselves nourished with 3 meals a day, #PFTLightHopeJoy posts 3 times a day to keep the soul nourished. PFT is delighted to have been asked to partner with Perth Theatre on Actor's Choice. The PFT Summer Ensemble 2020 loved the opportunity!'
Here is Jesse introducing why he loves the play:
And here is the opening moments of the play as Bri negotiates with his class:
