Greetings! Dave and I have spent the past week rehearsing feverishly in the main house at The Point trying to get a solid set design down as well as a rough idea of the kind of lighting tricks and shadowry that we as a company ever so love! But happily I can announce that we're...mostly there. Of course there'll be slight changes after the two week rehearsal period in August and September but I think it's gonna look really cool and eerie. And meaningful too!
Can't wait to see what he comes up with! Our good friends Milk Presents, The River People and ShadyJane are shaking their theatremakers up in Scotland for the Fringe festival and we urge you all to go and see their work. All deliciously talented and will have you roaring for more! [see end for details]
In other news, the company has been invited to take part in a series of guest post blog sessions at www.openshakespeare.org. Lucky enough to be set next to some delightful folks in the academic and professional fields, we're to discuss Shakespeare and the Internet, with some focus towards our e-approach to Lear. So we're dead excited for loads of reasons! Share your joy too on our twitter page and let us know about your own experiences with King Lear, with political theatre or with any of the issues that our Lear will highlight. Fat Cat would love to hear you mew @ PropagandaCo!
