Great Gatsby at Theatr Clwyd

 January 24, 2018

Great to be working with Theatr Clwyd again, and with the Guild of Misrule on their immersive production of THE GREAT GATSBY in Mold. They’ve arranged a great building to house the show – The Dolphin Inn, a rooming inn since the 16th Century. It’s a challenge to light using conventional fixtures, as while there’s pleasingly plenty of power there’s very little height above the performer’s heads. And the challenge of sourcing a ‘grand’ chandelier with a maximum depth of 60cm is taxing those available on eBay! But here’s a quick picture from the road that shows the realities of making site-specific work: we’re lucky to have the support of the owners and architects who are re-developing the Dolphin, and the building is currently a shell with no insulation or formal heating – so it’s pretty damn cold with the winter blast, and a forecast for next week of heavy snow!
