As for tour casting I'm happy that they've mostly gone with new grads or actors that haven't been in as many productions. It makes such a nice change from all these online concert lineups that I've seen with the same two dozen or so actors.
Bill doesn't normally like paying for one set, let alone two! 😉 He must be using some of the money he got from the Cultural Recovery Fund.
Don’t forget that the set was basically a couple of those big bookcases on wheels that your library was kept in, in reception. It needed locking down with a couple of those slide across gate bolts. Building another one? £80 and said reception class on painting flats. Nobody went for the sets.
