  This was the last of the trailers for the show: WHY SHOULD WE COME? (strong language warning!)
  ... as well as the second trailer: FORBIDDEN
  ... as well as the first trailer: SEXY

Here are some photos from one of the last rehearsals..

  the poster originally said the opening night would be 30 August, but in the end we changed the opening night to the 31st, which gave us a bit more time for rehearsal

Special facts

There was a marketing display for this show like no other. It was all over Facebook for a couple of months, as well as Twitter. The support for the show from the cast was exemplary, and there could not have been a Facebook friend of a cast member who didn't know about the show!
