Bill at The Yard
It’s a week on from the 4-day run of The Many Apologies of Pecos Bill at The Yard. What fun it was. Thanks to Jay Miller and Tarek Iskander at The Yard as well as fellow Artistic Associates Alex Rennie and Martin Constantine for their support with the show. Thanks also to the rest of the team at The Yard, who made working there a pleasure as always. It makes such a difference working in a place where you really feel looked after and where people care about making your show the best it can be. Yay The Yard.
Thanks also to Mat Martin, whose musical talents and general ace-ness added so much to the making process and to the show.
The Yard shows were the end-point of a 3-week intensive making/rehearsing period, but in a way getting the show up at The Yard was just the beginning. I’ll be working on the piece over the coming months with mini-showings here and there.
As part of the development of the piece, I’m planning a little Texas road trip/pilgrimage, which I’m very excited about.
If you’re interested in seeing the development of the piece, and in some cases having the opportunity to give me your thoughts and impressions, here’s where I’ll be showing Pecos Bill between now and the end of the year (including the AMERICAN PREMIERE of my work):
tickets available at the door
Under Construction: a mini festival of new work
The Gulbenkian, University of Kent
Battersea Arts Centre
Do come if you’d like.
And lastly, the wonderful Rod Farry took some ace photos of the show while we were at The Yard, check them out:
