David Almond backstage with TSF
David Almond, award-winning children's author, joined TSF during the development phase of their latest touring production Heaven Eyes, based on David's novel:
"New production of Heaven Eyes is being created by the excellent Théâtre Sans Frontières. The play will tour (initially in NE) in the autumn. Sat in on rehearsal yesterday. It’s looking/sounding great. Fine cast. Great discussions about the nature of the tale, its language, its darkness and light, its wateriness. Heaven Eyes herself is played by a young Swedish actor. Use of some Swedish vocab and music fits the play so well. So wonderful to see the story recreated and brought to life again. Each production of a play is different. Stories are never still, always seeking new forms."
