"The Dead"

We went to a local dinner theater performance tonight, invited by friends.  The performers are all local.  It was a reading of an abridged version of James Joyce's "The Dead" and all the actors were dressed up in costume.  My favorite costume was this woman and her hat, who came over to talk to one of the guests at our table before the start of the reading.

The actors performed their readings walking around the room, carrying their scripts in notebooks.  It was an amazing production, and very intimate in the small dining room of this restaurant.

Sounds like fun! I loved performing in plays, especially wearing period costumes. betsey

There is a very cool thing about costumes - you instantly become someone else, which is a lot of fun!
