It’s all about … timing.
February 14, 2016
One of the very atmospheric components of the Vault Festival at Waterloo is the sound of the trains rumbling in and out of the station overhead during the shows. But for our play X&Y they aren’t just atmosphere but an absolutely key component of the drama. In fact the precision that we require to time a sequence of lines in the play to coincide with the departure of the 19:07 to Mortlake has been absolutely crucial to an important twist in the plot. If South West Trains are late…then we’re stuck there improvising until it rolls overhead. Audiences so far have been very impressed with both South West Trains punctuality and the way we’ve incorporated the trains into the drama. As with the best theatre, it’s all about…timing.
