Thrashing out the staging of a one-woman show starring Liz Fitgerald-Taylor, mixing three stories together – The Frog Prince, The Snuff Box and The Rainbow Cat into a satisfying and exciting show, we’re using suitcases, a shadow screen and a variety of props and puppets.

With Rachel directing and designing, Adam helping with the dramaturgy and blocking, and Liz providing her excellent performing skills, the show is shaping up well with a simple yet effective exploration of hope and transformation using traditional and quirky modern fairy-tale imagery.

We are mining our extensive back catalogue for inspiration putting this piece together as well as using bits and bobs we’ve been saving up for just such a show. Be prepared for some DNA magic on stage near you soon.
