First readthrough of #WhatLight

11 Apr


Always an exciting time hearing a new piece of work being read for the very first time by a new team of actors.

Today is day one of What Light rehearsals. Yes I know we only finished the Romeo and Juliet tour on Saturday, but this is what we do here at Pilot.

So a new script, by Richard Hurford and Giuditta Mingucci took to the floor today, under the expert guidance of our Associate Director, Katie Posner.

It is a real privilege to be able to commission new work, and to work with a writer in the rehearsal room. So today is a special day for the company as we head off on the journey of creating a brand new piece of theatre.

This will run in York and then head off to Milan and Dresden as part of our EU Platform11 project.

In partnership with Teatro Elsinor in Milan, the RSAMD and York Theatre Royal we are starting this project today.

The company are keen to blog, tweet and audioboo throughout the whole process, and will be using the #WhatLight hashtag on twitter too

So feel free to get involved and feed into what is happening.
