A Wayward Feather


This summer at the Victoria Playhouse we are reaching out to friends who have worked with us in past seasons and asked them to share their stories of the time spent with us here at the Playhouse.

Trilby Jeeves performed with us for three seasons in the eighties. She played the female lead roles in ‘Talley’s Folly’, ‘Sinners’ and ‘Seamarks’.
Here is an excerpt from her reminiscences The complete story will appear on our new website coming soon.

“The best feeling was being on that lovely stage when the audience couldn’t stop laughing. My advice from the comedy ‘Sinners’ that my friend, Michel Houde, and I were in, is to not wear a costume with lots of feathers. Seeing one sticking out from Michel’s sweaty forehead as he made a “serious” phone call took great effort for me to not break out laughing. He had no idea it was there. He wondered why I whacked him in the head as we ran “up the stairs” (back stage) to return to the bedroom set. That feather had to go!
