Killer Joe is a terrific play; nasty, lyrical and mythic - and it's cast to the hilt in this new production, directed by Simon Evans. Produced by Emily Dobbs and Empire Street Productions, it stars Orlando Bloom, Sophiue Cookson, Adam Gillen, Neve Macintosh and Steffan Rhodri. I took these rehearsal shots last week and will be shooting production in a bit. The show opens at the Trafalgar Theatre on 18 May.
Pinter's classic kicks off the new Jamie Lloyd season at the Trafalgar, and I was lucky enough to take production shots a few weeks back. The show opened to strong reviews earlier this week. It has an incredible cast, but I must say that the superb Ron Cook surpasses himself in this one.
The play also features Keith Allen - and so begins my series of 'Fellow Fulham Fans What I Have Photographed' - I'm not convinced that it's going to be a massively long series.
What a play this is. There's something about Pinter that has always resonated so deeply with me. The rhythms. The relationships. The ratcheting tension. Highly recommended.

I love working with director Jamie Lloyd, am thrilled to have been asked to take the production shots for his forthcoming show, The Homecoming.
Take a look at that cast! John Simm, Jemma Chan, Gary Kemp, Ron Cook, John Macmillan and, fellow Fulham fan, Keith Allen. It being a Pinter show, I'm counting on a nice, relaxed and sedentary production with the minimum of 'jumping about.' That said: this being a Jamie Lloyd show it's probably best not to assume.
The show is on at the Trafalgar - a theatre that played host to The Pride and Richard III, both of which I shot for JLP last year.
In the midst of the madness that is unit photography, it's good to know that life goes on in the outside world. I've just been invited aboard the next Jamie Lloyd show at the Trafalgar. It's called The Ruling Class and will star James McAvoy.
Big fun to be had at the Trafalgar Theatre where the great Jane Horrocks is about to open in East is East. First production shots are out.
One of the many nice touches on Jamie Lloyd's Trafalgar Transformed season is the cast changeover event. The outgoing cast of Richard III share a stage with the incoming cast of East is East to face the press. Alongside Jamie Lloyd, they discuss the season philosophy, the production challenges and the experience of working at one of the West End's hottest venues.
I popped along to shoot the last of Martin Freeman and the first of Jane Horrocks. The East is East production shoot is up in a couple of weeks.
The first set of images have been released from the rehearsal room of East is East. I have the production shoot coming up in a week or two and it promises to be a great show. It stars Jane Horrocks and the play's author Ayub Khan Din
