Following its Casting Call in January, NWTC cast the roles and started rehearsals.
- Nicola (30-45) – Eva’s sister, a much more practical and down-to-earth character. She has supported Eva through her loss and narrates the history of the events as the play unfolds.
- Timothy (35-50) – A man whose comfortable existence was destroyed in a moment, after which his life spirals rapidly downhill. Now a reformed character, he is struggling to rebuild his life.
- Gavin (35-55) – Eva’s doting husband. A small role.
About the play: Five years after her husband’s death, Eva, who has been supported through her grief by her sister, comes face-to-face with the man responsible. The events which led up to that loss, and the consequent effects on all their lives, are explored in this one-act play. Working backwards through time in short scenes, the play illustrates how the course of our lives can change in a moment, and on a whim. The Ripple Effect is an interesting exploration of lives blighted by loss, and of fate and revenge.
The annual FEATS theatre festival will feature 12 one act plays, 3 per night, and at the end of each evening a professional adjudicator gives feedback on the evening’s productions.
