The program consists of a dinner for guests, who then follow the story of a mystery that takes place in and around the tables of the dining room. No stage, everything happens within the room, very close to the public.
My very small part was an interesting one....because my character (Anita) appeared right towards the end. No one really expected me to be alive! I waited in another room for the length of the play, waited for the actors at a certain point having dinner together (in another room where no one could see us). Then, I waited for my part, opened the door, and said my lines.
Great fun, wonderful group (and friend Loretta Bonamonte whom I had met during the filming of Lezioni di Cioccolato, 2 where I was an extra). The actors form the Sarabonda Teatro group.
Here are the photos of the evening, some behind stage after our dinner (and before appearing "on stage") and then others taken of the group after the show, dressing up as Santa and Elves.

Lovely Loretta Bonamonte (thanks for thinking of me for this part!)
