As it happened … The design/tech production elements are now getting sorted.

Today I called a production meeting and so now  have 3 staff + one senior student to look after the design and tech production (essentially lighting, sound, sets, props, costumes, special effects etc).  I’ve even got a stage manager! We’ll need him, as wrangling these students is not the easiest thing in the world.

I’ve also worked out a schedule to get us through to filming on 7 August and staging it for an audience on 9 August, including tech rehearsals. This is a huge relief as I had worries about the production side given that I have loaded up each little micro play with lots of design/tech elements. One play even features a stun grenade and several feature attacks by the Israeli air force and ground troops.

So it’s a great feeling to have the production side of things sorted and also to have a clear schedule ahead of us.
