Birmingham Repertory Studio

It’s always great to start a relationship with a new client. I’m very pleased to have carried out my first commission for Birmingham rep studio photographing early rehearsals and the dress rehearsal of the world premiere of “Feed The Beast” by Steve Thompson. This is a co-production with the New Wolsey Theatre in Ipswich directed by Peter Rowe, the Wolsey’s artistic director.
To quote the shows website; “Feed The Beast is a fiercely funny look at the rocky relations between our press and politicians…”
It runs until the 2nd May and is well worth seeing. It is already getting good press here and also included in an article here about pre-election theatre.
Below are some of the images from the early rehearsals followed by images from the dress rehearsal.
