Blog from director Alice Lacey (working with writer Alice Birch)...
The script is great, the actors are wonderful, the article is infuriating/provocative/making me hungry, there's hardly any time and everyone's eating a lot of food. It's all very greasy.
Now that's out the way - are there any professional photographers out there? Or failing that people who enjoy the odd snapping session?
Really, actually, a vague ability to aim and an expensive camera will do.
Team Alice need you!
We want an army of photographers to respond to the play that Alice has written over the next two days. If you would like to be involved and have a chance to see your work responding to a play responding to an article (it's all very responsive) then email firstname.lastname@example.org toute suite. Team Alice looks forward to hearing from you.
