Images from Tim Luscombe’s adaptation of Mansfield Park at the Theatre Royal Bury St Edmunds

I found these videos  yesterday, and I thought you might like to see them. As you know I’m off to see Tim Luscombe’s new adaptation of Mansfield Park on Saturday at Bury St Edmunds. (FX:Excited squeal) The theatre has recently put up two videos featuring the cast on its site. First, an interview with the actors who play Mary and Henry Crawford, Kristin Atherton and Samuel Collings:

I have to say I’m not sure if I agree with all of Samuel’s assessments of Henry Crawford’s character (!) but it makes for interesting viewing.

Here is an interview with Pete Ashmore who plays Edmund Bertram:

Mary Crawford as Beyoncé? I think I know just what he means :)

The third video is of the cast rehearsing dances, presumably for Fanny’s coming out ball:

I will only add that, in the words of the late and very lamented Eric Morecambe, someone in the cast is a lovely little mover…..
