The Restoration Project

The Restoration Project at Christ Church Cathedral in June 2005 was a spectacular success. Hundreds of people came out for our pay-what-you-can staged readings of three Restoration comedies: The Way of the World directed by James Fagan Tait; The Rivals directed by Bill Millerd; School for Scandal directed by Kathryn Shaw.

The event was masterminded by Theatre Cares committee member Allan Morgan, with help from Laara Sadiq. Fabulous Restoration wigs were created by the actors with the help of Melody Anderson, and the readings were stage managed by Chris Allan, Peter Jotkus and Kris Nelson
