Last month I was lucky enough to R&D a work in progress called the Wicker Husband. Director Charlotte Westerna, adapter/writer Rhys Jennings and prolific composer/lyricist Darren have been working hard and brought in teams of performers, musicians, puppeteers to piece together what they had so far. And it was stunning. We worked at the Unicorn Theatre with some music calls at Iris Theatre’s Actor’s Church and created something very special. I have every belief that it will have a life beyond this one week because the material deserves a life of its own.
Here is a short showreel of what we did
