Like one of the greatest playwrights of our times, Tennessee Williams, we believe that snatching the eternal out of the desperately fleeting is the great magic trick of human existence.
So in November 2015, in a spectacular untouched period venue in London, we created something completely unique. The entire venue was dressed up, to resemble 1940's New Orleans with all its intricate magic and light.
We staged three short plays by the great Tennessee Williams, as part of a full evening. And because In memory everything seems to happen to music it was accompanied by a live band playing jazz and blues throughout the evening, before, in-between and after each play, giving the audience the time to take a tour to the bar and treat themselves to southern drinks and snacks, served by themed bar staff, allowing them to completely step into the world of the great Tennessee.
✭✭✭✭ "Food for thought!"
✭✭✭✭ "The young cast perform these short plays well and it is good to see so many interesting female roles. I’d recommend this for an entertaining evening in beautiful surroundings with talented performers."
"All of these plays are about women who don’t conform to what society expects of them. They are alternately amusing, sympathetic, pitiable and dignified. The choice of plays works well and the cast do an extremely creditable job. Recommended!"

In regards to the recent media coverage about the many layers of sexism in our industry, we found it a fascinating and an inspiring challenge to stage these three short plays, since they all contain complex, lead female roles, exploring the effect this might have on various sides of the process. A prayer for the wild at heart kept in cages.
