INTERVIEW: LITTLE BULB Matt Trueman meets Alexander Scott, Dominic Conway and Claire Beresford of Little Bulb Theatre to discuss their production of Orpheus, set in a 1930s Parisian music hall with virtuosic guitarist Jean ‘Django’ Reinhardt taking the lead role. The young company talk about the centrality of music in their work and why they love the plucky amateurism of the theatrical naif.
INTERVIEW: STEVE GREEN Ella Parry-Davies meets the artistic director of theatre company and training institution Fourth Monkey, along with performers Lauren Young, Abbey Gorton and Euan Forsyth. The company’s latest production, Project Colony, is an immersive, site-sensitive response to Franz Kafka’s In the Penal Colony in London’s Docklands, devised by a 45-strong cast. The group discuss their devising process and the rewards of working in a site that can become a character in its own right.
