Painting the Chekov

The colour scheme of the Chekov Room wasn't popular. In fact it was hated by many and a decision was taken that a repaint was needed. Of course the theatre doesn't have the money for anything as frivolous as employing a painter to come in and do it so the Committee of FOTA volunteered (or worse) and these are some pictures of the event. It is only fair to say that most of the work was done by John Pyne but I hope you'll agree that now we can score ten for artistic merit (especially the bit over the door into the balcony)

Planning the work
So the green and the orange had to go

We've gone for plum on the bottom

John and Helen are putting white on the top of the wall

once Helen got started the wall didn't stand a chance

Come and see it soon
