Gogol's The Portrait
From then on the large, talented cast of Newbury Youth Theatre tell the grim tale of those whose poor fate it is to be associated with the portrait. The ensemble perform with zest their own adaptation of the story; combining well choreographed scenes, moments of comedy and a fresh use of accompanying music in the form of broken instruments.
The whole production is charged with a sense of the sharp, new talent that has created and leads this commendable show.
