Cena con delitto - my part in an Italian play

Last night was my third and final evening of having a mini mini part in the show "Requiescat in Pacem" (Rest in Peace) at the elegant country home in Ponte Pattoli (Perugia, Italy). The event is the well-known Cena con delitto, which in English means "dinner with crime".

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.
 Here we are having fun after our dinner - in the next room the guests are waiting to find out who commited the crime.
                                                  Here we are right after receiving applause.

 Here I am when I appear at the door, saying my line "Finally the truth, may Michaelangelo rest in peace"

 And after saying my second line, thanking all for coming and wishing them a nice evening.

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

LOVE the double or triple image maker on my Nikon D80. Just set it, and then take two or three pics.

What's the weather like now in Perugia?

Cold one day, sunny the next. Cold in the house. But we still need our coats or lightweight ones or padded jackets outside. Chilly, and not sunny. I like it like this, no problem for me.
