28th May 2020 – Very sad news. Janice Jarvis, a leading TIE practitioner, died today aged 70. Janice worked for several major TIE companies including the Cockpit, Nottingham, Coventry Belgrade and was a founder member of Contact Theatre Company. Janice also directed our production of “Peter’s Case”, a participatory play that continues to have a significant influence on our work. Our heartfelt sympathy goes out to Janice’s family. We hope when this current madness is over there will be an opportunity to celebrate Janice’s life.
15th April 2020 – We completed group devising just prior to lockdown and Paul Swift is now writing THE WITCH’S HOUSE at home. Once the lockdown is over we intend to reschedule the rehearsal and pilot tour, hopefully for Autumn 2020 or Spring 2021. Everyone keep safe and hopefully we can all resume our lives soon. Thanks again to everyone who has supported the project and the company and we look forward to delivering THE WITCH’S HOUSE as soon as we can. Best wishes and stay safe, Paul, Annalyn, Biddy and Michael.
