“Grapes of Wrath” at Hall for Cornwall, Truro: last night cancelled, this night a go

From the Hall for Cornwall’s blog:

THE SHOW WILL GO ON!

“Unfortunately, during last night’s performance one of the below-stage sprinklers was triggered.  Due to the location, water collected very quickly and for safety reasons power in the theatre had to be shut off and the performance cancelled.”

“All audience members are being offered the choice between a refund or an alternate performance, with Box Office staff working today to re-accommodate many of last night’s audience into the remaining performances.  The play is well worth  seeing and we hope to be welcoming most of our disappointed audience members back tonight and tomorrow.”

Having worked 48 hrs in a row once because the pyrotechnics of a band triggered the sprinkler system at a venue, I know only too well how staff and technicians must have slaved away to get everything going again. Very disappointing for the audience, and a nightmarish experience for cast and crew of the production. But nobody was injured, that’s what really counts.

Please exchange your ticket and watch “The Grapes of Wrath” today or tomorrow; don’t miss this great production. And while you’re there, give the staff a  smile and a thank you – I’m sure it would be appreciated. 🙂
