Terrific reception at the Cockpit

Posted : February 17, 2017

The inaugural Children's Theatre in the £ at the Cockpit Theatre has been and gone. And what a show it was! Expertly organised and run by Matthew Crowfoot, of Beak and Claw Productions, and Helen Barnett at the Cockpit, the young audience got to see snippets of four exciting new pieces of work, including Infinite Jest's adaptation of Much Ado About Nothing. We dusted off our 4 and a half year old script and updated it and gave the audience the first fifteen minutes. And received wonderful feedback: "it was awesome", "I loved the audience involvement", "it was really creative". So, we left very happy indeed! 

Our thanks to Matthew and Helen and all at the Cockpit.
