Last of the Tryouts

I've completed my first round of tryouts for Everyman now - lots of work still to do, but some really great feedback and the show improves every time.  Last night I was performing for a play readers group in Hadleigh, where the discussion of the play afterwards lasted longer than the play itself.  I do like a good discussion.
As promised last post, the Bad and Good Deeds from the last few shows... (all spelling original)

Bad Deeds:
I put a bag of stones in the wheelie bin
Disciplined a student - he didn't deserve it.
Broke an ornament in someone's house and hid the evidence.
Parked in one of the co-ops disabled car spaces.
Forced someone to pay for a scratch on my car that I did.
Told my parents a lie and said I had to go to a meeting rather than seeing them.
Stole flowers from my neighbour's garden.
Played a trick on my sister said she fell over and hurt herself
I stole some sweets when I was a child.
Didn't count a putt in golf on my score!!
Ate sweets when I shouldn't / Ate too much chocolate
Serious murderous thoughts regarding Putin!

Good Deeds:
I take my neighbour's weely-bin out and put it back. : )
Learnt to smile
Helped with my granddaughter when she broke her arm. In fact solely in charge!
I donated my bike to the thriftshop Hadleigh.
To give hope where none exists.
Helped a friend in distress with financial matters
Visit elderly people who live alone.
Helping someone less fortunate than yourself
Started a community group who subsequently raised lots for charity
Helped someone who fell over in the street.
Helped to organise a surprise party for a friend
I took a German hitchhiker from Gibraltar to Calais and bought all his meals on the journey

And I'll leave you with a few more quotes from the audience...
"Something we are unused to - but enjoyed immensely... Thank you!  A first... Unusual and interesting... Terrific & thought provoking - thank you..."
And I even put together a little word cloud of the audience reviews so far...
