There was some initial mystery over the date of this production, but help was at hand ....
"This production, in Tomlinson Hall, was in 1977 and I know that because I was in it! As Pozzo! A smaller but significant part that wandered through the lives of Vladimir and Estragon. I cant remember why we did it though I think it may have been Tim Eaton's suggestion. I do recall that an English teacher (lady, blonde hair) was overseeing the production though we got on with it mostly by ourselves."
(25th March 1977)
"Zigger Zagger followed Waiting for Godot, in the next week. As far as I can remember one involved the junior drama group,
and the other the seniors. I got roped in by Nick Varnon ... probably in a case of bribery. Nick shared a flat with Mike Ronayne ... the man with the Betamax - I know we used to get them to tape programmes for us ... Dr Who springs to mind! I also recall sitting outside their flat door with a fellow inmate singing very loudly (and badly) and having loose change thrown
out of the door to make us go away ... one way to supplement our meagre pocket money allowances! Happy days!"
"Zigger Zagger - it was hell of a night. The script was rather 'loose' & consisted of many rather rude football songs/chants. We got so lost during the show that we kept reverting to another chorus of a song which brought into question the parentage of the referee. I recall that the Warden brought a VIP & was very embarrassed - I think the drama teacher got away with it by the skin of her teeth!"
