Your Memories
Chris Firth remembers ...
This was my first time in a production at the Criterion. The thing I remember most about it was that at the end of the final dress rehearsal, I had bundled up my costume (which I was sharing with Gareth Withers) and stored it under a table. Linda Holmes, who was doing wardrobe was not very happy with this (quite rightly)! She asked me who I thought would be ironing the costume!? At the time I think I thought there was an ironing fairy (my Mum), but after this quickly realised that clothes left on the floor were NOT magically pressed. Life lessons taught by my friends at the Criterion.
