Sally Cookson Visits Hotel Echo

Leave a comment

It was an absolute pleasure in mid October to have Sally Cookson lead us for two fun packed and enlightening days of research and development on her show ‘Jane Eyre’. Sally Cookson is a professional director who has directed many very successful shows at the Bristol Old Vic including Peter Pan, Treasure Island and The Boy Who Cried Wolf

During our workshops with her for Jane Eyre we focused on the beginning of the story: the birth of Jane and the tragic death of her parents and uncle. We tried and tested many ideas, being playful in our exploration.

Some of Hotel Echo practically exploring how to show Jane’s father dying gradually from illness.

Sally has a distinctive style of directing which leaves much room for her actors to share a creative input on the show. We felt privileged to have worked with Sally and have definitely been inspired by her ability to create excellent work in such a welcoming rehearsal environment. We very much look forward to welcoming Sally back into Hotel Echo later this year and hearing her thoughts on our own show.

There are still tickets available for ‘Jane Eyre’ and it isn’t something to miss! The show is truly beautiful and keeps you gripped throughout with its use of live music, ensemble work and honesty in its story telling.

We will premiere our new show at Bristol Old Vic in June before taking it to the National theatre of Scotland's Tin Forest festival as part of the Glasgow 2014 Cultural Programme.
