Travels Through the Looking Glass
The final performance of Travels Through The Looking Glass took place on Friday 9th May, playing to a packed house both inside and outside Dinefwr House, in deepest Carmarthenshire. The outstanding performances from the cast began within the plush surroundings of this beautifully-restored, and very recent National Trust acquisition, before, led by the Frog Footman, we were beckoned outside where the play continued. Rousing, prolonged applause greeted the actors at the end of the adaptation. Dressed in fawn-coloured calico, the costumes shaped from the original Peake illustrations, the actors then brought us all back inside again for the final poetic flourish. The clapping took some time to die down.
