Last week was pretty exciting. Aside from being kicked out of our rehearsal room and then subsequently evicted from the kitchen for making bacon sandwiches (an apparently unheard of use for a kitchen) we have managed to make a short trailer for The Hairy Ape.
And by we, I mean a whole lot of fantastic people. And by make, I mean nearly made.
So, consider this a teaser for the trailer. And a thank you to everyone who gave up their time, effort, sweat and in one case actual consciousness to make it happen. THANK YOU.
Check back soon…
We’re into the second week of rehearsals for The Hairy Ape. That was quick. In case you wanted to know what happened, our fantastic Assistant Director is writing a little rehearsal diary about what goes on in the dark, dank, depths of the rehearsal room. Hopefully with the arrival of several new heaters (thank you, Argos) mid-way through last week it’s now at least a little less dank.
We’ve also shared loads more info about the world of The Hairy Ape available on our tumblr so you can see what’s been inspiring us.
Besides the fact that we open in only three weeks time, that is…
In its first major London revival in 25 years, Cartwright Productions and Creature of London in association with Southwark Playhouse are proud to present Eugene O’Neill’s 1922 masterpiece THE HAIRY APE in an atmospheric and muscular new production directed by Kate Budgen.
Coming to Southwark Playhouse in May 2012.
