We are still working on the development phase of The Value of Nothing. We have completed 6 workshops with Mr One Million, working with artists Mark Haig and Freya Lund to facilitate those, and we are currently working towards some development days in April, with a rehearsed reading of the play at the end of those days – more info on that as soon as we have it – including the potential cast for the development.
Paul and Kim are happy that ACE agreed to fund the research and development phase of their new play, The Value of Nothing. We are going to be working with Mr 1 Million in Bolton to explore what it might mean to be perceived as either the ‘deserving’ or the ‘undeserving’ poor, and we are writing a play that is based around the Faust story. We will be researching, working and writing this through to January 2015, when we hope to have a rehearsed reading of a draft.
