Back in the dark old days of The Bacchanals, resources were even fewer than they are now and, sadly, photographic records of the early shows are virtually non-existant. We are particularly ashamed of these awful images taken by Walter Plinge on a point-and-shoot camera at a runthrough of Othello but figured it's better to have them up than nothing at all...

With a bit of luck (and mastery of digital camera technology) the future will see these terrible photos replaced by off-camera stills from the video recording of the show...
