  • Just a bit different this week, as we present The Play that Goes Wrong on a thrust stage (for only the second time in my memory * ) at Chichester Festival Theatre. Obviously for a show with a fixed back wall that provides something of a challenge, but luckily Alan Bartlett’s been planning for this date since the tour was announced. […]

    Well the original cast from London have had a great six months in New York, but are now handing over to a new company of actors in the hope that they might finally get through the show without anything going wrong!

  • two terrifying blackouts enhance the enthralling soundworld of Haas’s In Vain***** The Guardian
    Last week I was lighting a concert with a difference at RFH – much of it was performed in pitch black. The players had to learn the music for the dark periods, and for the last section of the piece the lighting acts as conductor. IN […]

      February 22, 2017

    I’m now out in New York working on the Broadway transfer of The Play that Goes Wrong! It’s been an improbable journey to get this far, and I imagine we’re just starting another loop of the rollercoaster, with much unknown in the next couple of weeks.
    Here’s the first picture from our new home, the Lyceum Theatre w […]
