Postlethwaite Post-Script

Vanessa Thorpe's tribute to the Everyman Theatre in the Guardian this weekend was a timely reminder of what it is we're trying to build here, and that even if we fail, the benefits from the effort roll down through the years. She notes that Postlethwaite rubbed shoulders with Bill Nighy, Jonathan Pryce, Antony Sher, Alison Steadman and Julie Walters, and worked on pieces conceived by Willy Russell and Alan Bleasdale:
The emergence of talent is not inevitable. It takes money and a supportive community to enable an artistic flowering and, if the theatre had stalled then, these stars would not have enjoyed their influential moment together.
A good short read that's worth two minutes.
