Fight director sought

Just a quick message to say we’re looking for a fight director for two separate projects. The job could suit either one candidate, or two separate specialists.   Project 1: Titus Andronicus: An All-Female Production (fringe tour) Our sister company, Smooth Faced Gentlemen, are taking a vibrant and violent all-female production of Titus Andronicus to the […]

A tale of two Ceasars

Tonight, I’m off to see the all-female Julius Ceasar at the Donmar Warehouse. It’s great that there’s a major mainstream venue drawing attention to the ideas and issues surrounding all-female Shakespeare, and the production looks to be a corker. I’m dead excited! But one thing’s niggling me, and I wanted to note this thought before […]

An interesting moment, and some stuff with a visa

Something interesting happened in today’s rehearsal. Tom stepped in to play the Nurse in Act III scene iii. With Romeo and Friar being played by Leila and Carly respectively, this meant that everyone on stage was playing the opposite gender. And roles that are quite rooted in their gender identity too, I reckon. This was much more […]

What The Faced?

It seems about time we properly introduced Smooth Faced Gentlemen and our involvement with it. [Note – This post was originally written about three weeks ago but, what with all the rehearsing and doing plays, we’ve only just got around to publishing it!] As you may have gathered, we’re co-creating a production of Romeo & Juliet with […]
