Heroic Faun No. One

Gregory Cooper scored a role as a featured extra on the first Narnia film.?? Initially excited, his mood changed as he experienced the realities of Hollywood movie making.?? When I first read the title of this show, I thought it was??strange that it could be read as "no-one" as well as "number one". It's a clever little preview of what's to come.
The play is funny. Cooper has??taken painful memories and turned them into a??hilarious account of the realities of being an extra.?? Lucky he can laugh about it now.?? We laugh along with him – even when the situations are uncomfortable.?? The set is based on a sort of shrine??with a screen off to the side showing clips from the movie. Cooper plays several different characters -??including interactions between himself and other characters (my favourite was the agent.)
Lots of fun. Every aspiring actor should go and see it.
On for two more nights at The Basement.
