The White Devil


On Wednesday I am back in Stratford to see the RSC’s wonderful new production of the White Devil, directed by Maria Aberg with movement by Ayse Tashkiran.

I find the physical theatre element of the RSC’s most recent productions so incredibly exciting and it has given me confidence to try new ideas with the way I see my musicals on stage. It all goes back to the kind of theatre I studied at Drama School, the influence of Peter Brooke, my amazing teacher John Wright, Lindsay Kemp, Berkoff, Complicite… But the RSC are working with a script and not devising the piece, it is the method of realisation that has been borrowed from physical theatre and shaken new life into the way we bring plays to the stage.

The White Devil is Webster’s terrifying revenge tragedy – I can’t wait!
