ARTISTIC UPDATE FROM PAULINE

‘THE TROJAN WOMEN’, our entry to the KDA Audio Play Festival, is nearing completion thanks to the hard work and patience of our actors and wonderful technical team.

Another 2 opportunities to be in a filmed performance

‘Wilde Wilde Women’ inspired by the plays of Oscar Wilde. As Wilde is in the public domain, a project which takes scenes from his plays celebrating in particular his fantastic female characters (though his male characters will be included) would film well as they are quite static and rely upon the sparkling language. If you are interested in being involved in a Wilde project please let Pauline Armour know by 1 February at the latest so that scenes can be […]
