BLOG : Theatre Etiquette (Part Four) - Cast, Meet Crew

Bend It Like Beckham Saturday 01 August 2015

You only ever see them in the shadows. All in black, moving silently, appearing out of nowhere … The crew – a baffling force. A group of people who have the power to make or break your performance – they're the sort of people you really want to have on side. But how?
