We upped sticks and set up the next day behind the Salle des Fêtes at Sainte-Dode and the sun was so fierce there were lots of burnt arms and legs.
Third up was Gaussan (left) where there was plenty of shade but a surfeit of mosquitoes! Finally we shifted everything to Larreule near Maubourguet for the final performance on Sunday 11 July. Again the weather was kind and we were grateful for the shade of century-old plane trees.
More than 200 people came to enjoy our "Mixed Doubles" — a compilation of short plays which, although first performed in 1969, reflects just as truthfully today on various aspects of married life, whether that takes the form of competitive sporting rivalry with workmates as in Score by Lyndon Brook, musings on humdrum domesticity in Countdown by Alan Ayckbourn, or wistful dreams of a shared life hereafter in Resting Place by David Campton. In the form of interval pieces, two mimed playlets written by Michael Frayn complete the fun — Look Away Now and Toasters.
