Simon Brett does a lot in a quiet way for CFT. Writing for programmes and skits and generally making himself useful.

Memory: Scapino or The Trickster (2005)

123 Scapino or the trickster We so enjoyed this magical and hilarious production with Richard McCabe playing the lead role – and our children loved it too – so we came twice. On the second performance, one of the actors was stuck on a train journey and another actor had to come on and read the part from the script, but it still came across brilliantly.

Memory: Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead (2011)

rosencrantz 2011

Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead… I loved that. I love the play and I thought the production was excellent, absolutely excellent. It was done as if it was absolutely fresh and happening for the first time on the stage that night. I mean sometimes you can see plays and you know that they’ve been doing it for weeks and every night they’ve been churning this stuff out. And it’s a play that’s been around for a long time. But even despite that, they did it in a really fresh way.

Memory: Pressure (2014)


What a fantastic performance. Held one in its grip for the whole performance and just how much communication has changed since then. You could feel the pressure they were under.
