This week I've been at the Lyric hammersmith, working with the young company to devise a new play entitled Space Junk. Reading A book by Andrew Smith Called Moondust and getting into the stories of the moonlanders and astronauts that were involved in the Apollo missions. The book takes the viewpoint of the author/journalist meeting the remaining men that traveled with the Apollo missions. It's pretty remarkable some of the stories that these men can tell, their intellect and technical knowledge mixed in with there lives after the landings is extraordinary.
The devising process has been a really well structured and creative one, working within key rules and focusing on certain influences. It's been a really open and exciting room to be in!
Space Junk will be playing from Thursday 29th - sat 31st in the Lyric Hammersmith Studio
