A foray into ‘proper theatre’.  As Circus Director to Director Robin Belfield, to integrate circus performers into the action of a play about Brunel’s suspension bridge.  It is always interesting to see how the other half live: Stage managers…  Assistants…  Assistant stage managers… Whole tech weeks…  and, something I enjoyed indeed – the actors say ‘thank you’ when they are given notes!

Bristol based company Show of Strength produced the play, it was installed in The Passenger Shed near Bristol Temple Meads and the circus performers (Darryl Carrington, Hannah Darby, Alice Ellerby and Ben Walker) did me proud.
