Building the set for Our Country’s Good
24th Aug 2012
Our cast have had the rare advantage of being able to spend the final two weeks of rehearsal on the set, on stage at the Octagon Theatre Bolton. Designed by Tim Shortall (who also designed our productions of Top Girls and The Big Fellah, as well as the recent West End La Cage Aux Folles and Sweet Charity) the set was built in the Octagon’s scenic workshop. Acting construction supervisor Pete Rimmer talks about preparing a set for touring, and there’s timelapse footage of the set being installed.
