StageSpace, Pleasance Islington
Directed by Steven Grihault
Designed by Adrian Gee
Projection Design by Eva Auster
This was an enormously enjoyable project to work on - a one-woman show about a serious but heartwarming topic, acted and co-written by the very person the play was about. It was a lovely opportunity to work with Director Steven Grihault for the first time, as well as Video Deisgner Eva Auster and Stage Manager Sophie Johnson. As well as designing a rig that was responsive to the clean and white set, quirky venue beam positions and plot-dependent video design, I also designed and implemented the cueing system which allowed the stage manager to fire Video, Sound and LX from one QLab file, with the Musical Director firing backing and click tracks from the same laptop via a MIDI Go. After pre-programming it in rehearsals, it worked like a dream in tech.
