Tribunal

August 12-20th 2016

I was given the opportunity to intern on PYT & Griffin Theatre’s collaborative, participatory theatre event ‘Tribunal’, though I was fortunate enough to attend enough of the creating, devising & rehearsal process to be given a ‘Production Assistant’ credit. Part of my role on the show included: note taking, independent research & fact checking, transcribing interviews and at the latter stage – some assistance as an outside-eye and vocal coach running warmups.

Client: Powerhouse Youth Theatre & Griffin Theatre
