Having mentioned the cast being required to contribute their
own ideas to the performance, here are examples of cast
members each adding their own touches to the characters and
scenes. The actor portraying Nick the Groom was also an
accomplished stand-up comedian, so he turned the Groom’s
speech into a routine all his own, devastating the décor and
a few local identities who were in the audience. The female
cast members were all song and dance girls with vast
experience from musicals, thus the inclusion of a major
Broadway number at the end of the second act, deliberately
done in a style best described as “drunken hens-night” and
aimed squarely at the poor blokes sitting at the tables
nearest them. Another example - the actor playing Nan
improvised on the night that people might like to call her
“Nanna” Maskouri. It’s now in the script.
