With the 6-week production process at Guildhall, this show was a real challenge to learn the mix for, especially with short lines that all overlap. Nether the less, this has been one of the funniest productions I’ve worked on at Guildhall. This was my first large-scale production on the DiGiCo SD10 with 8 cast, all double mic-ed as well as a handheld mic and 4 mics hidden in the floor to amplify the sound of the automation.

Martin Crimp’s ‘17 scenarios for the theatre’ presents an intriguing array of nameless characters who attempt to invent the perfect story to encapsulate our time. As one says, “The point is that the search for a point is pointless.”

This highly original and ambitious work has been translated into more than 20 languages since its premiere at the Royal Court Theatre 25 years ago. Emma Baggott directs this Guildhall School production.
