This autumn I’m working with the extraordinary Chris Goode, directing him in a new one man show for Oval House.
Eight-year-old Mirabel wakes up after the end of the world to find herself alone, except for her old faithful Bear. Everyone else appears to be gone.
And so, Mirabel and Bear set out on a journey across the new desert to find an adult to take care of everything. On the way, they’ll acquire a ragged gang of fellow travellers, including a visionary red-eyed dog, and an injured pilot who insists he’s not the grown-up they’re looking for.
A sad, strange fairytale, Mirabel is a story of what happens when you refuse to accept that you’re lost.
Mirabel is the new solo from the creator of the much-loved The Adventures of Wound Man and Shirley and the award-winning Men in the Cities.

Earlier this year I joined classicist Natalie Haynes to discuss Dido, Queen of Carthage on Radio 3’s Free Thinking. My productions, as angels in the architecture, of the play were the first professional productions, and it was my first creative encounter with a ‘lost text’. Its been an important play for me to work with, through it I began my exploration of site-specific working of lost or forgotten plays. The RSC’s production this year see the play become part of the living repertoire in British theatre.
