Red Table

So I’ve set up a theatre company.

This has been rumbling on for a while now. M’brother Rafe and myself have had several successful productions already individually – Oliver Twist and A Christmas Carol for me, Dark Tales, Kitty and Damnation, and The Duchess of Padua for him – and we wanted to do some work together.

So together we’ve founded Red Table, a company dedicated to bringing outstanding fringe theatre to London.

I’m also pleased to be able to announce that our first production will be an adaptation of Rudyard Kipling’s The Just So Stories at The King’s Head Theatre in Islington this Christmas, from the 15 December through to the 3 January. Rafe is directing the show, while I’m producing.

Rehearsals started on Monday with a – frankly – magnificent cast and tickets will be on sale shortly.

You can find out more about the company, the production, and the cast by visiting the Red Table website.

We want information. Information!

M’brother Rafe and I are attempting to put on a play this Christmas. This will be the first production of our new theatre company.

If we can make the figures work, it’ll be on in London as a late morning or early afternoon show in December/January this year.

There are a lot of interesting things that we want to do, including something that – as far as we’re aware – has never been attempted in Fringe Theatre before. More details on that over the next month or so.

But in the short term, we need some data on what time people would be most likely to go to the theatre in the day.

That’s where you come in.

If you’d be so good as to spend a few minutes to answer a short questionnaire, it’d help us immensely in our planning.
