the caravan by Liam O’Driscoll, Mimi Poskitt, Ben Freedman, Royal Court, 28 February 2009

We absolutely loved this unusual and superb production.

We weren’t in the theatre downstairs, we weren’t in the theatre upstairs. Janie and I were in a caravan with six other audience members and the cast.

It was about the floods that were/are affecting so many UK citizens.

Read about it on the Royal Court site here.

Official London Theatre explained it well, with a super picture, here...

…and here.

Verbatim theatre. When it works it really works.

the caravan was only 35-40 minutes long, but this short piece has lingered long in our memories. Not much bowls us over these days, but this production really did.
