I’ve got accreditation for Fringereview to cover miniFridge 2014! miniFridge is a summer performance festival spinoff of Frigid New York set in the intimate theatre Under St Marks, in the Village. Just seven shows, but it’s a good way to dip our toes in the water in NYC. The first show is The Field, on Friday.
Trish and I are headed back towards the US. Home is just around the corner. It’s been about four years since we left for England, and the closer we get, the more it begins to seem like we’re actually returning. We’ve been touring A Brief History of Beer for about three months straight now, with bookings in seven different countries, and the reviews are fantastic, everywhere we’ve gone. Now it’s time to see what the US thinks of our globe-trotting show…
It’s official: Trish and I have been inducted into the great British Guild of Beer Writers! We’re headed to an awards dinner later this month in a posh Mayfair hotel and the drinks and nosh are sure to be killer. It’s been a long road getting here. The beer show didn’t come cheap or easy, but it’s a great piece of work, and we’re both really proud of it.
Very pleased to be working with Alexander Zeldin again, this time at The Yard, in Hackney Wick. The project is a devised work, to do with the marginalized people on the periphery of the working class, called Beyond Caring. I will be designing lighting organically for the warehouse space of both the space and the play.
