One Way Ticket – Week Four

Rosie Harris talks ships, scripts and staging for the One Way Ticket tour.

Although we don’t start touring until March, the One Way Ticket team has recently been on a mini-tour, visiting the two superb ships (did I mention the ships?) that make up half of our tour venues – the magnificent SS Shieldhall in Southampton, and the equally lovely LV21 in Gillingham. The pictures here are of Chris Elwell from Half Moon and me finding our sea legs with some of our lovely venue hosts, along with …

One Way Ticket Tour Blog: Week three

Sophie Rose, one of the two artists assisting Rosie Harris with preparing the script for One Way Ticket, talks to Apples and Snakes about Week 3 of rehearsals!

We are on week 3 now: it’s funny how the words spin in your head as you are writing a new piece of material.
I have found myself …

An extract from April’s London Snakebasket

This is an extract from April’s London Snakebasket, to view the full version, click here.

Ah, spring: season of mists and mellow fruitfull… – no, hang on, that’s autumn. Nevertheless, spring is an equally fine season, and just as worthy of poetic celebration.

For us, April really kicks in after Easter. It’ll be something to take your mind off all the money you’ve spent on purple foil and cubic centimetres of air. We present another Creative Salon on Thursday 12th, when we invite you, the public, to have …
