An early start for the ‘bump in’ to The Granary Theatre with Playing the Maids. The morning starts with checking the copious amounts of flowers used in the design are fireproofed, then Éadaoin Looney, Aoife Bradley and Katrina Foley help me create bunches of blooms to be suspended from the rig to delineate the playing space.

We’re assisted in the get-in by fantastic technical interns, who hang the lanterns, string flowers onto fishing lines, suspend them from the gantry and deal with whatever other odd request we make without batting an eyelid.

We are in the midst of focusing and preparing for the tech dress at 6pm this evening as I write at 5.15pm…. but it’s looking good under the initial lighting states…..
