"The action constantly moves from one set to another so it's a bit of a challenge for me as the director, the actors and the technical crew," Carryn said. "The action is very fluid but we're all up to it at the end of the day, it's a delightful family play."
Loz Haynes plays Ma Larkin in the Limelight Theatre production. Her 11-year-old daughter, Camryn Gillett, has also been cast as one of her on-stage children in the show.
"Ma Larkin is cheeky, fun and full of life, as well as being the old-fashioned traditional mum baking and making for her growing brood," she said. "She helps Pop on and off the farm and keeps her man happy by sharing him around the village, as long as he doesn't go too far and she always remains his number one.
"This is my first lead role, which is a challenge in itself, but I also need to bring my own touch of Ma to life because most people will be expecting a copy of what they know. Ma is just my cup of tea she is 'perfick', as the character might say."
