Everybody’s Talking About….
Taliesin Arts Centre
Saturday 2nd March
The show began with a bang – a whole cast performance of the hit song “Everybody’s Talking About Jamie” (by Tom MacRae) performed with energy, movement, colour and powerful sound. Then a complete contrast – an intense monologue from “Jerusalem” by Jez Butterworth. The performance consisted of fourteen extracts from a wide variety of plays ( and one dance piece) which moved smoothly on the whole from one piece to the next, taking us on an emotional journey from fun to pain and back again. The evening had pace with the first hour flying by.
Once again, WGYTC convinced us of its talent, enthusiasm and its commitment to live performance. The directors are to be congratulated on inspiring such a high standard of performance across a wide range of pieces from this group of young people – in spite of not being able to rehearse in a residential setting this time.
