The Crimp Plays are a selection of short plays written by Martin Crimp. The plays included in this production are Play House, Whole Blue Sky, Face to the Wall and Fewer Emergencies. They are directed by Chris Kelham, with set design by Richard Gatti Associates and costume design by Cecilia Carey.
The production involves a sequence of gun shots. This is represented by balloons being popped to signify the shootings. The Stage Management team have worked with a selection of balloons and powders, as red powder comes out of the balloons when they are popped and settles on the floor of the set. Ideas for the red powder included flocking powder, poster paint and even Red Velvet cake mix!
You can see the cast working through the sequence in Technical Rehearsal below:
The production is in the Milton Court Studio Theatre tonight.
