Photos from TheatreCraft 2008

This is a selection of photographs that were taken for TheatreCraft 2008 at the London Coliseum in London in November. Some of photographs were then later used in 'The Stage' newspaper in January this year.

TheatreCraft is a skills fair which highlights all the career opportunities in theatre outside of performance. Run by Masterclass at The Theatre Royal Haymarket in association with Mousetrap Theatre Projects, Society of London Theatre, ENO Baylis and supported by The Stage, TheatreCraft 2008 at the London Colesium was a great success. It explored the many skills involved in staging a production through workshops, talks, demonstrations and displays from leading theatre practitioners and training providers. TheatreCraft is an annual event and new dates and times for TheatreCraft 2009 will be announced later this year.

Early Press Photos From Death Of Long Pig

These are some of the photos that were taken for early press and publicity use of 'Death Of Long Pig' by Nigel Planer.

The photographs were taken in a rehearsal room at the Jerwood Space in London a few weeks before the play opened at the Finborough Theatre. At the time no set was available so we had to improvise with the backdrop which was in fact a piece of material that was later used in the production. Full costumes were available though. To make sure the photographs looked real and in the moment, I got the actors to run short scenes from the play and photographed these.
