A note from the director-
"I have always been committed to creating a platform for other artists. I've always worked very hard but like anyone, I relied on more experenced artists to guid me and give me a step up, especially when I first began my career. I was lucky that this happened. I wouldn't be where I am without these opportunites and I believe firmly that fostering a sense of community allows creativity to thrive and artists to be braver, especially at the moment. The Response shows give me the same sense of creative development that it offers the writers and actors. It's a professional production with all the rigour and focus neccessary, but with compassion and creative growth at the centre of the work. This is an exciting collaboration which brings together a huge team of creative people to reassure us all that theatre is still very much alive. The future is definitely brighter, but until then, I hope you'll enjoy this escape. "
