Next up: Contractions at the Crucible, Sheffield

One of the great things about my job is that you get to see really talented people's careers progress. A case in point: Lisa Blair was associate director on Thirty Million Minutes last year - flanking Michael Grandage. She steered a gem of a showcase production of Howard Goodall's Love Story at the Royal Academy of Music (photos coming soon) and soon she'll be taking the reins on Mike Bartlett's wonderfully twisted parable, Contractions. The production opens in Sheffield and I'm delighted to have been asked to shoot both rehearsals and production for this show. So much good stuff has come out of that house, not to mention good people. Roll on June...
