About the show
Remember you saying you could speak to anything if you wanted to. Right? Did you say that? Remember that. Said you could speak to the stars. Just had to know how to do it.
It's raining. It won't stop. Someone's standing in it. They're shivering. They're cold. They're waiting for someone they haven't seen in a very long time. They've got a rucksack full of alcohol. And a fish.
A touching play about abandoned responsibilities, what we choose to remember and what we thought we'd forgotten.
About the director, Harry Gould
Harry Gould is currently on the Directing MA course at LAMDA. He was a co-director on the Made in Bristol course at the Bristol Old Vic Theatre [2019-2020]. He co-directed Buffering, a socially distanced devised piece at the Bristol Old Vic Theatre and collaborated on a community theatre piece called 9 Million Nobodies at the Tropicana, W-S-M. For over five years he has worked with young people in theatre, predominantly as a drama tutor and as an assistant facilitator at the Bristol Old Vic and Tobacco Factory Theatre. In 2018, Harry co-founded Loupe Theatre and produced and performed a play he had written called Shroud at the Alma Tavern & Theatre, Bristol. Then, in 2019 Harry directed a new play by Miel Celeste, The Impracticality of Womanhood at the Alma Theatre. Loupe Theatre continued to help young emerging artists in and around Bristol by running monthly scratch nights at The Wardrobe Theatre, Bristol.
Simon Longman studied Drama and Theatre Studies in Manchester before moving to London. In 2013, he took part in the Royal Court Theatre’s Young Writer’s Programme, and in 2014 he won the Channel 4 Playwrights Scheme. His produced work includes White Sky, Milked, and Sparks.
During the one-year postgraduate MA Directing programme, directors build their practice through an intense programme of practical classwork, reflective tutorials and attachments as assistant directors on LAMDA productions, supporting the work of professional directors. Training culminates with each student directing and realising a play of their choice in one of our performance spaces.
