James Phillips and Alan Lane discuss how to make epic theatre, and their huge scale productions Flood, Camelot: The Shining City and The White Whale.
Alan Lane is Artistic Director of Slung Low. They make large-scale, out-door, political people’s theatre: often on fire, sometimes on water. He helps run a Pay What You Decide theatre in South Leeds and a Cultural Community College out of the oldest working men’s club in Britain now a community club, The Holbeck.
James is a writer and director. His first play, The Rubenstein Kiss, won the John Whiting Award and the TMA Award for Best Play. Other plays include Flood (BBC/Hull 17/Slung Low), McQueen (West End), City Stories (59East59 New York, St James Theatre London), Camelot: The Shining City (Crucible Theatre), Hidden in the Sand (Trafalgar Studios).
