I like to participate in life rather than be a spectator. Music, dancing, theatre, travelling, food, cycling and walking are some of my passions. Writing is an enjoyable pastime that allows me to share my experiences.

Douglas Frost's Earth and Sky is the third production for Castle Hill Players in 2022. The story is intriguing and keeps the audience guessing until the end. Faith Jessel in her role as director has created a dreamlike atmosphere of shifting timelines in this classic "film noir" style murder mystery.

The cast of nine moves to the staccato beat of music around the dark but clever set that evokes the menace of Chicago's gritty and corrupt underworld. Black and red are dominant colours used in the costumes and the set and reminded me of the musical Chicago.

The heroine Sara McKeon (played by Kate Jirelle) comes across as a naive dreamer with a head full of poetry. Her complete trust in the character of the "love of her life" David Ames (Jason Spindlow) leads her to investigate his brutal murder even though she has only known him ten weeks. She doggedly follows her own leads much to the chagrin of the investigating detectives who are following a different agenda. Her life is threatened as she encounters gangsters and hitmen as well as David's mysterious ex-girlfriend Maria Defaria played by Lara Angseesing.

Earth and Sky is a fantastic production full of red herrings, gangsters, smoking guns, sly humour and gutsy females that makes for a very entertaining couple of hours.
