Reviews : Broken & A Lot of it About

ALot-Broken-Eflyer-2

We’re well into our North West tour now, having visited Salford’s The Lowry and the Square Chapel, Halifax, moving onto Liverpool’s Lantern Theatre later this week. After a slightly scary start with one of the main actors, Brian Gorman, falling ill just before the shows opened at The Lowry, the tour has gone from strength to strength.

Broken

“Writer Ella Carmen Greenhill goes to a lot of trouble to build a credible background to the story of one damaged individual trying to heal another.” – David Cunningham, thepublicreviews

“Central to the play is Hannah Keeley’s commanding performance as May. Endearing and bouncy, her portrayal is at its strongest when the story delves into memories of her trauma and she threatens to drown within these dark memories. A scene between her and Greenwood on a waltzer is particularly effective.” – The Fiction Stroker

A Lot of it About

“With its quick and witty script, A lot of It About is a thoughtful piece of theatre. (4*)” – Joanna Ing, whatsonstage

“The humour that sometimes permeates plays dealing with homosexuality as a topic can feel very forced, but here it flows naturally. Director Alex Shepley juggles this humour and drama and coaxes strong performances to produce an affecting story that builds towards a conclusion that for once is laden with hope. Thoroughly recommended.”The Fiction Stroker

We’d like to say a big thank you to everyone who’s come to see the shows so far, and a particular thank you to the reviewers for your feedback. If you haven’t seen BrokenA Lot of it About yet, you’ve still got time to catch us at the Lantern Theatre in Liverpool (10-11 May), Oldham Coliseum (14 May) and the Pavilion Arts Centre in Buxton (8 June).

Introducing … Kathryn Allan

broken-rehearsals-compilation-kat

Hi everyone, Kat here. I’m the designer for Broken and A lot of it About for Organised Chaos Productions.

I have only just recently graduated from LIPA, summer 2012, so am very excited and lucky to have been chosen to be part of this great theatre company!

I’m really enjoying it so far. I have done some smaller tours previously, one with a puppet show that I designed and made, and another most recently with the brand new Theatre Company The Lion Tamers, on their show “In Pursuit of Oblivion” by Robert Pegg. So I wanted to expand my knowledge of touring productions and how different theatre companies work. I love the problem solving and logical thinking that’s involved.

It has been a great opportunity to design both the shows, and a great challenge to think how we could possibly use the same items. So far, I have been visiting rehearsals, gathering costumes and props for the performances, and this weekend have started building the set, which is very exciting seeing it all come together!

I can’t wait to see them both together at the dress rehearsal on Tuesday evening, and for the opening night at the Lowry on Thursday.

Hope you can all make it, and that you enjoy the shows!

Kat
