On Saturday the show was in Bradford and today I follow up with a session at Leeds University. Their Drama Dept. (sic) has a great base in a converted chapel on the City Centre edge of campus. I spoke about the company, the show, the process that led to the show and how this relates to our wider approach. Then I fielded some questions, these were thoughtful and a useful way of gauging an audience’s reading of the show – all seemed on track. The final 90 mins. disappeared swiftly as the students addressed the challenge of adapting other ‘impossible scripts’. These experiments are always tantalizing as a host of possible shows present themselves and dissolve never to be made.
Tomorrow the University of Roehampton is in my sights.
