…Where did that idea come from? What’s it like in the White Slate Theatre rehearsal room?
These were just some of the questions posed to us (White Slate Theatre) at Post-Show Discussions in 2015. With our new show Captured, Playwright Jenna May Hobbs & Director Suzanna Ward want to offer the opportunity to see behind-the-scenes during the rehearsal period.
The story of Isaac & Sophie in Captured explores the themes of perspective & success.
How do we present ourselves in the digital world? What does a photograph say about us? How do we seek affirmation & what does success mean to different people?
This blog looks to unveil some of those ideas.
You’ll hear from us (Jenna & Suzy), as well as designers, actors, stage managers, marketing officers, friends… & perhaps even you! Get involved in the discussions & we might just invite you to contribute more (only if you want to, of course!).
Alongside this blog, we’ll be having open rehearsals & page-to-stage workshops (yes you’ll really be allowed inside the rehearsal room & if you can’t make it down to Canterbury, there will even be the occasional sneak-peak with live streaming). All of these discussions & rehearsals will lead towards full performances in Canterbury, Birmingham, York, Edinburgh & beyond.
So wherever you are in the country, we want you to be involved.
