stage manager's light (visible stage left between the side curtains) out of the view of the audience, as this was very distracting during Carol and Mr Briggs' cliff top scene, and which slightly detracted from the emotion and poignancy. All the costumes were very appropriate to both the characters and the time period – such a large cast cannot have been easy to dress so the wardrobe team is to be applauded. As the production ended with the beautiful ensemble number, I could feel myself welling up a little, which doesn't happen very often! I know from speaking to other audience members that they were equally moved. This was a very fitting end to a wonderful production given by a brilliant team. Thank you to everyone involved for such an enjoyable evening.
