Your Memories
Geoff Firth remembers ...
My elder sister persuaded me to accompany her to see this production of Inherit the Wind. I was reluctant and had pretty low expectations of a little bunch of amateurs in an old disused chapel. I was so wrong. The production was stunning; a huge cast of very talented actors, a set which transported me into a realistic courtroom, lights, very professional setup. Little did I know then that six years later, I would be persuaded by a fellow teacher (the young actor who I had so admired in that production -John Hathaway) to return to the Criterion and join as an acting member. The rest is history.
