Episodes for Lancaster Conference

On the 31st March, Out of Character will be performing their new work for the first time, "Episodes" at the mhhe conference in Lancaster

This work has culminated from the recognition and development of our educational based work and is in reponse to a need to develop a performance which tells our experiences and challenges audiences whilst retaining a sense of theatre and sophistication.

As artistic director for the company I am very excited about the piece. Our work in progress show at the C4C Celebration event held at York St. John University gave us some useful feedback and I am relishing in the difficulty and uncertainty people had watching our performance. We've now looked in more detail and depth at the material and I hope we can expand on this and provide no easy answers for our new audiences, after all dark humour is now very much an Out of Character trademark.

A nod of appreication to Brecht, Forced Entertainment and the performers of Out of Character.
