Nick Lane- Director and writer


Watching the silent rehearsal process was nothing less than revelatory – displaying equal parts compassion and control, director Vanessa Brooks has unlocked the magic of theatre for a whole generation of performers who might otherwise not have been given such a wonderful gift. To see that work in development after having seen Vanessa’s peerless Hypothermia in 2011 is testament to what can be achieved. The process makes the work seem effortless. If I wasn’t excited by what might come next I’d be jealous to death!
