Spring Lantern Riddles

A weeks research and devoplement working on newly translated text 'Spring Lantern Riddles' adapted by Julie Tsang and directed by Fiona Mackinnon.

This project was Part of the Royal Shakespeare Companyโ€™s Chinese Classics Translation Project.

I was part of the cast of five for the week as a actor/muso, creating a live score as we put the script on its feet in the room. It then culminated in the first performance of Spring Lantern Riddles at The Lyceum, a dark, dramatic and romantic tale about mistaken identities dating back to 1633.

After the show we had a post show discussion with the creative team which was then followed by the next sharing of 'The Male Queen' directed Pamela Carter.

Cast in Spring Lantern Riddles: Jamie Marie Leary, Liz Chan, Louise May Newberry, Molly Harris. Translated by Alison Hardie
