Opening Night at the Vulcan by Ngaio Marsh Part One
We discuss chapters 1-5 of Opening Night, or Night at the Vulcan by Ngaio Marsh. As the Vulcan Theatre prepares to open for its’ first production in a long time, The Revisit, Martyn Tarne is faced with a theatre that seems to have a sinister life of its’ own. As the backstage politics of the cast starts to cause turmoil, can the production go ahead, and can Herds even find a mystery to solve? We also speak with friend of the show and independent playwright and producer Andrew Fallon to talk more about how the living theatre affects the works performed inside.
