We've been extremely busy working on The Devil & Stepashka over the past couple of weeks and have a whole bunch of exciting announcements!
First of all, we have taken a series of new promotional pictures, you can already spot around the website. We have also updated our main design for the production and you can see the new look on the left.
Furthermore, we have new and extended performance dates for the production's transfer. After our initial run in June 2014 at The Space, we will now have three additional performances on the weekend of the 19th and 20th of July at Ye Olde Rose & Crown.
More details on this and everything else on The Devil & Stepashka are in the dedicated section of our website, If you haven't seen it yet, we are also organising a workshop on the play and have launched a crowdfunding campaign! Stay tuned for many more exciting updates and developments over the next weeks.
We are delighted to announce that Christopher Keech is joining us as the Production Designer of The Devil & Stepashka, which will be presented for a three-week-run in June 2014!
