Ahh! Last night in our production of "Into the Woods" our borrowed cow's frame snapped! We borrowed the cow from a professional theatre company, so needless to say, I'm a little freaked out. 8O Unfortunately, we can't really fix it because the frame is metal and needs to be welded. We've managed to brace it with bamboo sticks, duct tape and strips of fabric- at least it stands now! The actor stumbled with the cow and (we thought) bent the leg. When we took a look inside we saw the frame had snapped along the joint in a crucial weight bearing spot! I don't actually think it's our fault, I don't think we could have prevented it- the break looks like metal fatigue (It's an old cow), but we've got to get this thing through two more show, and then return it. They say something goes wrong in every production, and I guess it's true. I still feel guilty, as I am the one in charge of sets and props. So- advice? comfort? similar experience?
