Carting a cart.

This is our new cart, it was bought from Manchester Library theatre where it was used for Mother Courage.  It's 3m x 1m x 2m  and it is beautiful, however it is causing me sleepless nights in its transportation.  I have to move it from the Library theatre 10 miles to the Oldham Library where it will be used as marketing in their foyer.  from there it goes 4 miles to Uppermill our rehearsal space, then back to the Library for the first part of the performance and then back to Uppermill for the last three performances.  4 journeys in total at £100 per journey.  I'm spending more on this than it warrants.

I suppose in the old days the actors would load up the cart with the props and pull it to the next venue.
