So, we’ve just spent a remarkable few days in Suffolk on the (world’s first?) Theatre Farm Retreat set up by Sam Worboys of Worboys Productions, working on BookStory. This culminated in a showing of work-in-progress at Cambridge Junction on 22nd July alongside fellow Retreating companies, Bootworks and Jon Whitten. Aside from devising in a beautiful setting, we had superb artistic and production advisers coming in. And lots of campfires. Here’s a picture of us listening to a talk about branding:
Yes, I know we look a little uncomfortable. It wasn’t the sofa. Still, brand we must. And blog and tweet, apparently. Here’s a picture of the campfire:
That’s better, isn’t it?
And here’s a picture of us performing at the Junction:
Note that the dynamic Gilbert Taylor has joined us as a performer, adding much gusto to proceedings.
We’ve made huge progress on the show and are very excited about finishing it ready for Spring 2015. Many thanks to Sam and the Worboys team for all their support.
