Little Bulb look back at their 1930s Orpheus

27th April 2013



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. Recorded at Battersea Arts Centre, 24 April 2013. Some background noise.

Django was said to play the guitar with a human voice… He very much let his guitar do the talking.
