The In the Shadow performances went down well this weekend, and
saw Jane and Katie joined by Gareth Nicholls and Marlene MacKenzie in
performance roles. Katie, in role as Annie the Litter picker, took
audience members on an amble around Centenary Square, where they
encountered several slightly desperate characters who drew them into
their lives for a few brief moments.
Audience members enjoyed the game
of wondering who was ‘a character’ and who was just a regular member of
the public, and observed that our characters blended surprisingly
convincingly into the real world of the square, where reality was often
stranger than fiction. We’ll be taking on feedback from these
performances, and developing the piece, so watch this space for updates.
