Debut

#Fowc #Debut

Salford 24th September 2019

You studied for three years for this

learning your trade from masters of the craft

reading from renown writers

and really digging in to the character of your role

Arrived at the set early

the place a hive of activity

your director goes through the script

with you and your fellow cast members

The ghosts of Olivier and Guilgud

watch in reverent observance

as make up artists prepare you

for your premiere performance

Final preparations

on location

crew checking site

for every eventuality

And as the spotlights fall

And cameras roll – under directors word

You give your immortal line –

“Do you want fries with that ?”
