Man Of The Moment
Directed by Mike Rogerson
20th - 28th April 1995
Douglas Beechey was once a hero, and prevented a robbery by Vic Parks. A TV special
brings them together to see how their lives have changed since the attempted
robbery. In true Ayckbourn style, the program does not end as the TV company intended.

Building the set was interesting! We built a working swimming pool. It
sat half in, half out of the scene dock and when filled contained
nearly two tonnes of water. The floor boards adjacent to the dock
were supported on acrows to take the weight. It was filled (with help
from North West Water) from a standpipe in South Oak Lane. The filling
took two attempts, the first was abandoned after the entire pool
started to tilt and had to be rapidly drained!
