Et Tu: Sebastian & Petruchio Filming – behind the scenes!

Welcome to our exclusive and exciting behind the scenes fun of our first Et Tu shoot!

IMG_6662 (1)

A moody Petruchio, brooding and all out of love awaits the company of Sebastian… reviewing his lines? There were so many great moments on this day!

 

At times it was very serious. And very fun.

We had a long day in the Players Bar (thanks to the Charing Cross Theatre for hosting our boy and their little drama). Many thanks again to George Turner (Petruchio) and William Sebag-Montfiore (Sebastian) for joining the team to work on Easter Sunday!

Hope you all had a lovely break – stay tuned for more behind the scenes easter eggs (totally went there) and updates as it gets edited and leading up to the release!

 

 

Et Tu: Sebastian & Petruchio @ Briefs!

Thank you to everyone who was involved with our very successful live performance of Et Tu: Sebastian & Petruchio at Briefs XVI. It was an incredibly fun experience for us from writing, through casting, directing, rehearsals and performance.

One of the hightlights was working with the exceptional actors: George Turner and Jonathan Edward Cobb. Absolutely cracking!

Here are some great photos (by Shaun Kitchener) from the dress rehearsal.

(You’re still talking? Still here? Well fine. We’ll sort it out then…)

This was a bit of an experiment for us, playing with how in a new writing night how this work would fit but the feedback we got was great – including people who didn’t necessarily know the characters.

Thanks to Shaun and West Avenue Theatre Company for producing the evening and all those lovely people we had in the audience. It was an experiment well worth doing and we enjoyed the journey as much as the outcome.

Both of us are still bubbling with warm and fuzzies.

Stay tuned for further Et Tu news and developments!

First Rehearsals for Et Tu!

Here, enjoy some sneaky pictures of rehearsals for Et Tu: Sebastian & Petruchio.

Rehearsal

The first of which started our new favourite hastag #SociallyAcceptableManspreading!

Also featuring in this rehearsal – a director with script fanned out across the floor in an appropriate manner and a writer who used hers as a plate for biscuits.

Rehearsal2

Such intensity!

Thanks to Jon and George for a wonderful first rehearsal – it was a joy to see these characters leap off the page and onto the floor.

Don’t forget you can see them on stage next week (April 5th Waterloo East Theatre in #Briefs).

Introducing: William Sebag-Montefiore as Sebastian. #EtTu

Will is playing a Sebastian, euphoric in love and marriage – he’s not about to let any brooding Petruchio dash his hopes or temper his happiness.

 

Introducing: George Turner as Petruchio. #EtTu

We are very excited to announce for Et Tu – George Turner playing the first of our very fine characters joining the expanding In Souliloquy family – Petruchio from Taming of the Shrew.

George is playing Petruchio both for our digital theatre piece and also live on stage for Briefs (Wednesday, April 5th, Waterloo East Theatre). We are chuffed to have such a great energy in the room!
