WORKSHOP MAD MAN SAD WOMAN

MAD MAN SAD WOMAN WORKSHOP

York Theatre Royal

February 2014





Head for Heights spent a week of working on exploring Mad Man Sad Woman, by Juan Radrián, with two actors discovering the kind of language that these two destitute and derelict characters would use when talking in English. Also researching how much equivalence there was between the circumstances in a destroyed slum area in Santiago and the situation of the homeless in our own streets. 


This was then followed up with a later workshop and reading at the Chilean Embassy in London, to test its impact on an invited audience of theatre makers and goers and academics and translators.

'The immediacy of the reading gave a sense of how powerful Mad Man Sad Woman could be, it's further development to production is to be highly recommended.'
