Fight2Flight Theatre was created with a very simple objective; to perform new new work with the actor and the writer at the centre of the creative process. Then to surround these essential elements of theatre with the best theatre practitioners: directors, lighting designers, composers, stage management and set and costume designers.
The first event is a revival of The Chronicles Of Oggle by Peter Gowen in a co-production with Asylum Productions.
The company will also launch a series of events called Fight3Flight Friday Forums. These will take place on the 6th and 13th August @ 11.00AM in Smock Alley. The subject of these forums will be about how to cope with unemployment, and entitled “When Am I An Actor?”
