Janine Wunsche introduces Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night, her first show at SLT and upcoming 28 June – 2 July 2022. What drew you to directing this particular Shakespeare? Initially I was thinking that the comedy was what everyone needed after lockdown, and a trip to a warm sunny setting (after no-one had had a holiday for years) prompted me to set the play on a beach.

Andy Webb introduces The Habit of Art by Alan Bennett, our upcoming show running 14 – 18 June 2022. What is it about this particular Alan Bennett play that appeals to you? It’s witty, as you’d expect from a Bennett play. But also structurally it’s very clever. Bennett began with the idea of an imaginary meeting, thirty years after their catastrophic falling out, between poet W H Auden and composer Benjamin Britten, once great friends and artistic collaborators. There’s so […]

Lisa Thomas introduces Hapgood by Tom Stoppard, our upcoming show running 31 May – 4 June 2022. Our usual opener – why did you want to direct this particular play? I was looking for a play to read with a particular group of actors with whom I had had a great experience on another play. This was a pretty good fit in terms of the gender balance of the characters and the types involved. I love spy stories and had […]
