The story of In My Name
Following my debut production as a director and through meeting and working on Thin Toes with Georgia Lowe, a very talented emerging designer, she introduced me to an up-and-coming theatre company Yaller Skunk who had the opportunity to transfer a new play from the fringe to an Off-West End venue.
I was then asked to re-direct the production of Steven Hevey’s incredible first play, In My Name for its Off-West End transfer.
Featuring four exceptional young actors – James Alexandrou, Ray Panthaki, Kevin Watt and Adeel Akhtar – the play was a razor-sharp, black comedy that placed four disparate characters in a flat on the day of the London bombings in 2005.
Opening in July 2008 at the Trafalgar Studios, the production was awarded a host of brilliant reviews and also named by the Evening Standard as one of the ‘FIVE BEST PLAYS in London’ at the time.
