Lord Arthur Saviles Crime was first published by Oscar Wilde in 1891 as
a short story. This was before the mid 1890s when he had a very
successful run with his plays Lady Windemere's Fan, An Ideal Husband, A
Woman of No Importance and The Importance of Being Earnest. It is
interesting then that Lord Arthur contains reference to characters that
appear in these later stories. Perhaps Oscar was one of the earliest
Where's Wally enthusiasts and liked to have some hidden gems for his
audience to find! In this adaptation by Constance Cox, she has added
further references and even a line or two directly from other Wilde
stories and plays. So make sure you have your super spotting eyes ready
when you come to see Lord Arthur and see just how many hidden gems you
Playing Harold Hill last season must really have taken it out of Colin! In October of last year he was bouncing around the stage in pursuit of the lovely Marion. This season he is shuffling about, barely able to get in and out of a chair. Remembering all of those lines must have affected his memory as well as he has become very forgetful and doddery. Perhaps it is due to a "round" Birthday he celebrated recently?? Of course it is not the ill effects of a previous play or the aforementioned birthday that is causing this peculiar behaviour. It is his fantastic portrayal of Arthur's uncle, The Dean of Paddington. His character acting is just as impressive as his leading man status. If you were delighted by his performance last year, make sure you don't miss him in action as the rather forgetful Dean of Paddington. (Oh, and happy birthday Col!)
It is very exciting to welcome two new people to the CPP stage for “Lord Arthur”. Mark Collard joins us in the role of the palm reading Mr Podgers. He heard from his wife Gill what fun it is to be involved at CPP and couldn’t keep away! Mark has a number of strings to his bow but I’m not sure if palm reading is really one of them! Perhaps try him out after the show! Meredith Norton joins us in the formidable role of Lady Julia Merton. The script suggests that Lady Julia is probably a good friend of Lady Bracknell and when you see her in action, you’ll see why! Lady Julia and Meredith (in real life!) are poles apart: Meredith is so nice and Lady Julia...perhaps not so! It is a testament to Meredith that she pulls this off so well.
