Help. My Twelfth Night show is tomorrow. It was all programmed and cast and now two of my best actors (man and wife) have pulled out as they have gone down with flu. This is the sort of thing that makes you want to pull our hair out. You build a show around actors - what will suit them - a bit as though you have a wardrobe of clothes and you then pick people to fit. If you don;'t have the right people then the clothes just become ill fitting and sad. Do I try to recast or do I remove the pieces and try to find others? Of course you just have to keep calm and carry on. But think of me tomorrow.

Meanwhile have a good weekend. SadSad

Re:
Faith's Avatar Oh you poor thing Fennie - there is a lot of illness. I am coughing so much my ribs hurt people round here are calling it the cold bug - not as bad as real flu but worse than a cold.

Re:
Camilla's Avatar Oh no Fennie what a to do! Do you have another couple of actors who could fit the bill? Such short notice too, if not could play be postponed for another time?

Fennie's Avatar Sorry to hear that Camilla. Hope you slept better last night.

Well we got through last evening but it was a bit of an untidy show. Nevertheless I d think that people enjoyed it. Lot of clearing up to do.

Glad the Show went well Fennie despite two of the actors dropping out due to virus.
