I've been a massive and obsessive Woody Allen fan since the age of thirteen so it's not surprising that I pushed this choice of show through as forcibly as I could.  It was between this or The Importance of Being Ernest - no contest. 

 

We were very insistent to not copy the film or any of the performances - nobody wants to see a sub par Woody Allen impression.  That was rather difficult at times as Allen wrote the lead part for himself and his unmistakable voice and rhythms permeated the piece. 

 

This comedy about a neurotic film reviewer who falls for his best friend's wife saw us recreate a full New York apartment in the drama studio, that took a long long time.  How just two of us managed to build and erect that thing from scratch, I'll never know.
