We were over the moon with the fantastic response we had for Feathers at the Edinburgh Festival, both from audiences and from critics!

Here¬†are a choice selection of quotes….

            ****  Three Weeks

           *****Broadway Baby

There is nothing ordinary about this performance: dialogue is sharp, utterly convincing and wholly owned… a welcome change to the avant-garde which is often Fringe fare.¬†¬† Catherine Meek, Three Weeks ¬†

Sharp, slick and shocking drama…This taut drama, based on one of Ovid’s Metamorphoses, captures your attention from the outset… The script is incredibly sharp, funny and moving.¬†

The chemistry between most of the actors is electric and the performances are remarkable, with Adam Hipkin and Eliza Power doing a particularly splendid job as a tortured yet amusing married couple.

Deb Hamilton, Broadway Baby

With sibling rivalries, sexual tensions and an eye-averting rape scene…Eliza Power’s script, based on Ovid, shows an intelligent handling of the tale of two sisters’ doomed relationship with each other.¬† David Pollock, The Scotsman

This highly promising script is full of excellent subtext… The dialogue is concise…every sentence is charged with meaning and thought.¬†Remote Goat

Feathers started a month long run at Edinburgh Fringe Festival on 5th August 2010.

The first run of Feathers began on 18th July 2010 at The White Bear theatre, Kennington, London.  Directed by Catherine Robey, it was the second project for new theatre company Cougar Productions.

Feathers was first performed with the following cast:

Dan          Adam Hipkin

Marisa   Eliza Power

Edie         Phoebe Brown

Julia       Elizabeth Bochmann

Nathan  Rubin Moyo

The original run of Feathers was over 1 hour 30 minutes in length, which was then cut down to 1 hour 5 minutes for the Edinburgh Festival run.

Hello everyone!

Well anyone that reads this…

Do people actually read blogs anymore?

Anyway, I do therefore I thought I would start one in honour of a current project, Feathers!

Feathers, by Eliza Power, debuted at The White Bear theatre London on 18th July 2010 and enjoyed a sell out short run before we transferred to C Central at the Edinburgh Festival, August 2010.

Dark family secrets and a chequered history between two sisters bubble to the surface as they are reunited, in this modern drama based on Ovid’s myth of Tereus, Procne and Philomela. When Marisa and Dan welcome Marisa’s younger sister Edie into their home, the two are unaware of the impending tragedy. With the pressure of an ill child, interference from a meddling best friend and the arrival of Edie’s new lover, Marisa and Dan are put to the test. As their fragile marriage falters, Dan’s relationship with Edie develops into something more sinister, threatening Marisa’s trust and Edie’s sanity.
