Open Secret events:
On Saturday August 19th 2006, the Open Secret Season played host to a one-performance only revival of Once Was Home, a programme of short pieces written by Dan Horrigan and directed by Rosie Lawrence. A packed house enjoyed the sequence of biting, humorous, provocative and moving shorts. Running order and cast list HERE.
On Saturday August 26th 2006, Future Shots presented freshly written work pulled to its feet with minimal rehearsal. Nicola Neal, Catherine Houston-Eyers, Chris Sciueref, Doris Zajer, Charlie Palmer, Richard Keightley, Richard McStay, and Karl Sedgwick performed the short pieces. Gallery and an audio recording HERE.
On Monday August 28th 2006, Pre-Plague performed their unique comedy-rock show. A dollop of Prog, a smidgen of New-Romanticism, some piano-jazz and a bit of boyband syndrome were sent up mercilessly and musically as tempers frayed and the vocalist threatened to take his auntie's keyboard away! See photos HERE.
Also included in the season's calendar were workshops on Goethe's Faust. We hope to present further work on Faust at some time in the future. Watch this space!
