- I have been at the Tron with Kansas, working on the script with lovely actors Sadie Dixon-Spain, Jessica Phillippi and Beth Frieden. This is part of a week long festival of new writing happening at the Tron in June.
Rippling was a haunting portrayal of a woman yearning for the human contact of the big cities, compared to the isolation of her island home. Daisy Jo Lucas’s retreat was a comedic treat in a yogic, detox retreat full of people who needed the calm and silence, but weren’t terribly open to it, and Isla Robertson’s Coffin Race was an incredibly exciting blurring of genres with a staged radio play brought to life with a cast of people adding all sorts of exciting sound effects.
- Above is part of tech, where we were furiously trying to light each scene before being kicked out for the next person to light their show (the rush of a festivals!) and next to this, the exciting announcements in the local paper. Having seen all the shows on Kansas day, I can say that they were an absolute treat.
