PRODUCTION MEMORIES
Alison Dunmore, October 2007


The elegant Venetian set was designed by Bruce Bailey, another of Tom Robinson’s students.  Director Paulina Brandt, a professional actress turned drama teacher, wanted 15th century-style costumes.  I was given the job of designing and making them.

During the run, I enjoyed the lively courtship of Portia and Bassanio (Mary Haddon and Bryan Hall) including their playful readjustment of Shakespeare's text during the glove/ring exchange, and John Cartwright’s lively performance as Gratiano.

30 June - 9 July 1966
Courtyard, Abington Park Museum, Northampton
