Welcome to a rather brilliant production – with a rather exciting cast – and an even more amazing raison d’etre.
The Big House Theatre Company provides an expressive platform for care leavers who risk falling foul of social exclusion. The company is fronted by Maggie Norris, an extraordinarily enthusiastic and determined woman on a mission to ensure these individuals have a voice.
In fact, their most recent production, Baby/Lon, is based on the experiences of the cast, which only adds to the intensity and power of the play, really!
I was asked to shoot some individual shots of the cast in situ. The light was low, eratic, time minimal and the cast ever-so-slightly ruffled after five days of continuous performing…but…it was great fun and an absolute pleasure.
