Production photos

Most of these photographs were taken during the technical rehearsal when the part of Lena was being read by the Production Manager, so we have also included some from an earlier rehearsal where the full cast was present. All are displayed here courtesy of Mark Hillyer at True North UK. More of Mark’s photos of the production can be found in our Gallery.
