Over the last few months I have been working on a piece of Verbatim Theatre, carrying out interviews with the girl the piece is about.  She is someone I have know since she was a young child and having seen her grow up and then […]

Creativity takes time……

By |March 4th, 2016|

It has been ages since I’ve written a blog and after the excitement of Edinburgh it has been time to sit down and really reflect on the writing and how to take this forward.  I guess the thing I learnt at Edinburgh was that it could have been better.  The […]

By |October 12th, 2015|

After returning from Edinburgh over a month ago I am chatting to Mark, who played Seb in Consumption, about the whole experience.

Talking with Sam

By |August 26th, 2015|

Today we are chatting with the very handsome Sam.

So, you’ve been poorly, how you feeling now?

Much better, on top form.

Does the Edinburgh flu exist?  Or is it a myth?

Yes, but its also to do with tiredness and you start to pay for late nights.  The whole house has been ill […]

Big Love for our actors

By |June 30th, 2015|

They are funny, beautiful, skilled and not getting paid enough.  The thing that drives people to do what they love is a weird concept.  No amount of training or lecturing prepares you for the realities of being a working actor.   Our actors are travelling to rehearsals, working like dogs […]

The original cast members had previously created a “game” around some random objects; an old tap, a wooden spoon and a cardboard cable reel. This has somehow become […]
