You don't need to be a greenie to enjoy visiting Mr Green
I was fortunate to be invited to the final dress rehearsal of Visiting Mr. Green, which was a unique experience for me.

Read all about it.

I was able to chat with the cast before the rehearsal began, which added to my anticipation of watching their performance.

The cast. Robert Trott on the left and Andrew Tomazos relax on the set before the rehearsal.

What begins as a comedy about two very different men who do not want to spend time together, turns into something much more, as they get to know each other's lives and secrets.

Mr. Green and Ross in discussion.

At the beginning of the play, Mr. Green resents the visits from Ross Gardiner a young executive, who was sentenced to weekly visits to assist Mr. Green, an elderly pensioner he almost hit with his car.

That resentment changes when it transpires that the two men had a common bond.

Actors eating
A lot of the action takes place in the kitchen.

Mr. Green makes a cup of tea.

Another revelation happens and Mr. Green's resentment returns.

Both actors, Robert Trott as Mr. Green and Andrew Tomazos as Ross Gardiner give powerful performances amply demonstrating their talent and experience in theatre.

Mr. Green making a point.

Actor reading
Ross reading a very moving letter.

I strongly suggest you visit Mr. Green yourself.
