Blogs for Spotlight


Hello all!

I'm very excited and feel very privileged to announce that I have been commissioned by Spotlight to write a series of 4 blogs about the process of taking performance work to Edinburgh for the Fringe.

At this point I'm writing about how we took Our Man in Havana up last year, but I'm also considering the differences between last year and this, particularly with regards to lessons I've learned since Spies Like Us started, and also the challenges and opportunities taking two productions up this year, with Woyzeck still in development.

The first of them is now online and is available to view at the link attached. Let me know if there are any areas you'd be interested to read more about and I'' be sure to include them in subsequent blogs.

As always, thanks for reading!
