Performed at Soho Theatre for NT Connections and at the Electric Space, Islington – a complete build in a warehouse, 2011.
I was the lighting designer and technical manager for Islington Community Theatre’s Frank and Ferdinand, which involved a cast of more than 60 young people. We previewed in Soho Theatre as part of NT Connections, having had one run and a 3 hour tech session. A few weeks later, we took over a disused warehouse in Islington, and turned it into a theatre. The challenges here were considerable – a very low ceiling height, an in-the-round audience, very limited rigging resulting in very shallow angles for light, and having just a few evenings to tech after the cast finished school! The production is something I am genuinely proud of, especially the fantastically hard working cast, and turning a shell of a space into a theatre.
