This week on The Blackshaw Arts Hour, Matt, Ellie and Iasha are in the studio talking about Independence Day 2: Resurgence and playing a new Edinburgh Fringe game.
We’ve been working really hard on lots of funding applications to reboot our adaptation of ‘Gormenghast: Titus Groan’ – while we wait with our fingers crossed, here’s some lovely photos from the readthrough we had in Feb.

This week on the show, Iasha brings you The Blackshaw Arts Hour minus her regular co-hosts.
Richard Stratton told us his three top spooky experiences ranging from childhood all the way though to present day, a story that featured in Blackshaw’s Scare Slam last year.
Next up on the show was Beige, a piece of new writing by Dan Weatherer, performed by Richard Malado and Hayley Marie Axe and Directed by Catherine Lord at one of our regular New Writing Nights at the Horse and Stables in Lambeth.

“great dynamic…definitely worth seeing, a funny & wonderfully unique story”
“engaging and dynamic…boundless energy and spirit…a little bit silly, a little bit scary and thoroughly worth a watch!”
“a brilliantly written short piece…Rachel Nott is amazing…Art is played wonderfully by Alexander Pankhurst…A very enjoyable hour with a very entertaining script and very talented actors. Well worth a watch.”
“The chemistry of Nott and Pankhurst…make this thoroughly entertaining to watch…a taut play that manages to walk the tightrope of genres but playing to the strength of all”

Our delightful Designer for Black Shuck, Michelle Bristow, gives us a glimpse into the world of set building – you can come and see the set in situ, 11-19 May 2016 – book your tickets now!
We started out by mitre-ing (real word?) some of the timber so that we could make the structure for the bracing. It was hard!
The next part of the support structure, drilling the main upright piece to the bottom support piece.
Bracing pieces completed!
Laying out the pieces ready to have the holes drilled in to mark where the screws go, in order to be flat packed into my car and assembled at the venue.
Marking out the holes and numbering them, so its easy to match up the pieces at the get in.
Jacobean woodstain was the perfect colour, heres the groyne after two coats –
The fun (and messy) part – painting! All ready for assembly next week.
