INTERVIEW: BREACH THEATRE. One of the smartest emerging companies in British theatre, Breach Theatre are interrogating the nature of veracity on stage. Against the backdrop of the post-truth era, their work often interrogates the limits of documentary theatre and re-enactment. Following the success of It’s True It’s True It’s True, a verbatim piece fashioned out of transcripts from a 17th century rape trial, two of the company’s co-founders Billy Barrett and Ellice Stevens join Helen Gush to discuss the topicality of the show and their approach to devising. Recorded at the V&A Theatre and Performance Collections, Blythe House, on 27 November 2018.
