Milk Presents head to Camden in next stage of creation process
The Point associate artists Milk Presents head to Camden People’s Theatre to continue work on their exciting new piece, A Real Man’s Guide To Sainthood.
The Eastleigh-based theatre company will work at the North London theatre from the 18th to 29th June in the next stage of their Arts Council-funded creation period for the new work. During the residency, Milk Presents will work with their dynamic new cast.
Milk Presents will be working with Saskia Solomons, Sam Milsom, Stuart Wilde and Tiff Wearing - and design assistant Natasha Piper. This next stage of the creation period will also see the company working with renowned dramaturgy consultant Lu Kemp and soul singer Hannah Curtain, head of Music Foundation at Winchester University and lead singer of soul band Hannah Williams and The Tastemakers.
Milk Presents’ Ruby Glaskin said: “We are really excited about the next stage of the creation period of A Real Man’s Guide To Sainthood. To be working at the Camden’s People’s theatre, with such an amazing group of professionals is a real thrill.”
A Real Man’s Guide To Sainthood features carnal characters, wild storytelling and insatiable performance in a feisty retelling of England’s Patron Saint George that disembowels a national legend.
The piece will premiere during the Edinburgh Fringe Festival at the Underbelly from the 2nd to 26th August 2012. It will preview at The Point on the 24th July as part of Eastleigh To Edinburgh, a chance to get a sneak preview of shows that will be hitting this year’s Fringe.
