Hide&Seek | Production Sound Engineer

Part of my autumn trifecta of shows

This Milton Court Theatre production was part of my engineering trifecta allocation, being PSE for 3 shows at once.

As the production sound engineer, it was my job to facilitate Xana’s design and set up the sound system for the show. this also included the set-up and management of the sound network, OSC network, show relay and comms systems. My highlight of this production was figuring out how to incorporate the live mics for reverb effects whilst having to prioritise other productions.

Set in and around the Azazel Housing Estate in London in the not too distant future, Hyde & Seek is a radical re-imagining of Robert Louis Stevenson’s classic novel Jekyll and Hyde, exploring tensions that exist within our idea of selfhood.  

This gripping new thriller, told with dynamic lyricism, takes us on a journey through the dualities of light and dark that exist within us all.  

A world premiere commissioned especially for Guildhall School actors by writer and director Tristan Fynn-Aiduenu.
