All the world's a stage,
And all the men and women merely players;
They have their exits and their entrances;
And one man in his time plays many parts ...
William Shakespeare, As You Like It
Up and down the county in church and village halls people from all walks of life come together in the unique world that is amateur dramatics.
This project, shot in 2017/2018, followed the journey of the Bury St Edmunds Operatic and Dramatic Society as they committed to five months of two evenings a week, juggling family life, night shifts and work schedules to present a week long run of performances ... only 'amateur' in that they were unpaid, but so very professional in every other way.
