After a lengthy break, during which we’ve wound down, enjoyed the British summer, read lots of scripts, watched other actors working hard on stage and tidied up the props store (well, maybe that last one was a little white lie…) Out Of The Box is ready and raring to go again. We’ll be back in the Room Upstairs in March 2014 with ‘Still’ by Steve Lambert; a tense, psychological thriller about love, desire, trust and betrayal. Steve is a Bristol-based playwright, whose work has been produced extensively in London and the south west. However, this will be the first time ‘Still’ has been staged in the East Midlands. Auditions will be held very soon – see details on here, our Facebook page and our Twitter feed. Tickets will be on sale in January from the Drill Hall.
It’s been a over a year since Lisa and Simon bared all in OBT’s first production @the Blue Room’ in the Room Upstairs at the Drill Hall. We’ve worked extremely hard since then to set a benchmark for the company’s future productions. For reasons of sanity and self preservation, we will be producing two shows a year from now on instead of the three we managed in the first year. However, there is always the possibility of some side projects and collaborations.
Since our last update, Carrie and Adrian have left the company – Adrian has moved away from Lincolnshire and Carrie is working full-time and then some with the Lincolnshire Rape Crisis Team. Their support in getting Out Of The Box off the ground has been invaluable and we wish them the very best for the future. The company is now down to two permanent members, Lisa and Simon, but with lots of wonderful actors and supporters who all work together to make things happen.
We look forward to seeing you all very soon!
Lisa and Simon
