Congratulations to cast and production crew of This Changes Everything, Firefly’s 2017 Voyagers Performance Challenge. Produced in just 6 days, this production provided a literal, physical and emotional platform to frame an alarming tale of social, political and moral breakdown. Thankfully the inevitable bleakness of human frailty was tempered by some beautiful, poignant and striking performances from this talented young cast.
Set on a disused platform out at sea, Joel Horwood’s story unravelled through a central scaffolding tower (a regular Firefly favourite), enabling the performers to work in the round and on a multitude of levels. Considering the time constraints of this challenge, the weighty narrative and the need to negotiate trap-doors, towers and ladders, this was an astonishing achievement for such young performers (all S1 and S2).
A huge thank you to everyone who supported this production. In particular the co-directors Kirsty Byers and Amy Wilson, designer Jess Brettle, lighting designer/scaffolder extraordinaire Malcolm Rogan, and Laura Firth for photographs..
