Guest Blog: Composer Steven Edis On Musical I CAPTURE THE CASTLEGuest Blog: Composer Steven Edis On Musical I CAPTURE THE CASTLE
by Guest Blog: Steven Edis - Apr 11, 2017

Our musical I Capture The Castle started its life several years ago on a suggestion from Teresa Howard, following up an idea from her daughter Frances. Teresa and I had recently completed our first collaboration, Possessed (a slightly folky/Gothic telling of the factual story of artist William Morris and his circle). We'd workshopped and showcased Possessed to general acclaim, but at the time struggled to take it further and give it a proper production. So we really just thought it was easier and more fun to start writing a new piece. (more...)

BWW Review: PATIENCE, Hackney EmpireBWW Review: PATIENCE, Hackney Empire
by Alexandra Coghlan - Mar 9, 2017

'What a very singularly deep young man that deep young man must be!' You don't have to look very far in selfie-taking 2017 for an equivalent to the narcissism and aestheticism that are so thoroughly sent up in Gilbert and Sullivan's 1881 Patience. So perhaps it's best that director Liam Steel has left all that to look after itself, and instead of a topical satire has produced an unapologetic period romp, with just a few too many smutty moments for complete comfort.
