So after another sterling day of work, with the cast and the fab Ros and Sam, we are looking forward to sharing the play with our audience tomorrow and getting feedback. This is such a useful process, and having use of The Lab at the Octagon has been completely fantastic – it is such a lovely space and everyone there has been so helpful and welcoming, we have really enjoyed our time there.
