Featured Work

Around the World in 80 Days

Role/Title: Designer
Year of Production Opening: 2014
Venue: The Theatre, Chipping Norton and Tour

All aboard for Toby Hulse’s re-telling of Philias Fogg’s 80 day dash round the globe. Three actors, multi-rolling as all the characters, used physicality and a succession of bizarre costumes and props which all sprang out of an oversized suitcase. The set had to be flexible as the tour visited every kind of venue from fully equipped theatres to village halls.
