Writer and performer Marcus Reeves and Julia originally worked together in 2009, when she directed a rehearsed reading of Marcus’ play Single Numbers Only at The King’s Head Theatre. Reconnecting again in 2019 after they had both been involved in a diverse array of projects in the intervening years, proved to be a very happy occasion. It has since meant that they have become creative collaborators again, developing new pieces of work throughout the UK lockdown of 2020.
Although they were due to premiere a new solo show on the London fringe in October 2020, with the continuing Covid restrictions on live theatre it has meant that the original short film A Clean Slate is the first of their co-productions.
Marcus and Julia will now continue with the development of the solo show whilst creating another short film in the immediate future.
