We are very proud to be able to announce our wonderful team of delightfully desirable directors:
Alice Bonifacio is directing Nice Jumper by Dan Page
Norman Murray will direct The Hidden Room by Patricia Reynoso
Tom Neill directs The Work-Love Balance by Tom Jensen
Dan Horrigan will direct Three AM by Barbara Blumenthal-Ehrlich
Sarah Davies is working on Would You Let Me Finish? by Leon Kaye and
Emily Bush has taken the helm on Heart’s Desire by Ali Kemp & Deborah Klayman.
Having introduced our directors to the writers, it transpired that (director) Tom and (writer) Tom are almost neighbours, which we hadn’t realised and is quite incredible really given the international nature of this showcase.
All are working hard together, casting is close to complete and rehearsals are underway. It is now time to reflect on what it’s like doing this a second time around.
What we realise as we work towards Represents…Desire is the importance of a thorough debrief.
Bringing together …The Launch in November was very much a learning process for us – with six plays, six directors and six casts – so after the event, we sat down and discussed every element of the production, from securing our venue to curtain up, and figured out what worked and what didn’t work. We looked at how certain things could have been done differently and acknowledged what really went well.
From these discussions we were able to start planning for …Desire and, so far, so good – a much more relaxed experience. However there is still much to do, so it’s time to go and get on with it.
Don’t forget, get your ticket in advance for only £10. …The Launch was a sell-out so don’t delay! Tickets are on sale here .
