RADA graduates in the Lockdown Theatre Festival
As theatres and artists continue to find new ways to share creative work in the digital sphere, it is great to see many RADA graduates getting involved in a range of productions and performances.
One such project is the Lockdown Theatre Festival, created by acting graduate Bertie Carvel. As part of the BBC Culture in Quarantine season, four productions that were forced to close early due to the Coronavirus pandemic are being reimagined for radio and will be broadcast on BBC Radio 3 and 4 on from 13-14 June.
The plays include the Orange Tree Theatre production of The Mikvah Project by Josh Azouz featuring graduate Josh Zaré; the Royal Exchange production of Rockets and Blue Lights by Winsome Pinnock featuring graduate Kiza Deen; and the Royal Court production of Shoe Lady by EV Crowe featuring graduate Tom Kanji. Simisola Majekodunmi was associate lighting designer on the original production of Shoe Lady.
