Your Memories
Terry Nicholls remembers ...
The very professional Mr.Ruscoe decided to put ice water in the bottle he squirted down my trousers during the fight in the store on the last night of the run. That was fun. I had my revenge for the final scene of the play, however. John had to play it completely immobilised in a hospital bed. The mattress was upholstered in vinyl. about ten seconds before he jumped in, I emptied a bottle of ice water onto the mattress. I loved working with John on that, and many other shows back in the late seventies. Of course, he is now in his late seventies. and I’m not :)
