Being Norwegian by David Grieg

The Albany, Deptford.

February 2015.

Presented as part of Gobstoppers, the Stonecrabs Young Directors Festival, at the Albany Theatre, Deptford.

StoneCrabs is a director-led company: its interest in nurturing new directors from all sectors of the community fuels this programme. Each year a small number of young directors go through training programme centred around production, project management and theatre directing. It introduces artistic and practical management tools for the director and encourages an individual approach, utilizing the director’s own vision. At the end of the programme, the participants put their training into practice by producing a festival of staged readings with professional actors, each participant directing a play of their choice. This popular Programme has been running since 2006.

...simply directed by [Jen Tan], who coaxed some first rate performances out of actors Olivia Bromley as Lisa and Ricki Chamberlain as Sean ... How would she be directing Chekhov I wonder? Or grappling with Tennessee Williams? From the talent on show here, I think she would relish the challenge. ★★★★
