5 minutes with...Toby Ealden - Artistic Director Zest Theatre

Posted by Lyric Hammersmith, 22 May 2015

We caught up with Toby Ealden from Zest Theatre ahead of their Theatre in the Square performance Boy Meets Girl.

Tell us a bit about Zest Theatre?

Zest creates exciting theatre for, by and with young people. We’re based in Lincoln and tour theatres, public spaces and schools with our innovative shows. Our shows usually have some kind of interactive or immersive twist to them with the audience places right in the centre of the action.

What’s your role in the company?

I am the Artistic Director and get to oversee all things creative for the organisation. I love my job but it’s not as glamorous as it seems, we are a very small company so I also have to get my hands dirty and do a whole range of not so interesting things too!

So what is Boy Meets Girl all about?

As the title says, it the story of boy meeting girl. It’s a simple story of their relationship that gives the audience the chance to physically follow the characters through the joy, hope and heartbreak of looking for love.

We use dance, theatre and a specially composed soundtrack to tell the story through our Silent Disco Headphones.

The show’s content lasts 30 minutes but loops for an hour giving audiences a chance to see both sides of the story. But if you stay until the end you’ll discover that it’s not your usual love story ending.

What are you looking forward to most about performing at Theatre in the Square?

We’re based in Lincolnshire, which is a very rural county. Last summer we tested the show on some of our local communities in rural market towns. We’re excited to be opening our 2015 tour in London at Theatre in the Square in a very different setting!

Why should people come and see Boy Meets Girl?

The thing we find most exciting about the show is that everyone reads it in a different way depending in their own expectations or experiences of love.

It means the show is super accessible to everyone regardless of age. There really is something for everyone – even the youngest audiences have been drawn into the story.

Also, our headphones are pretty cool too – so come along, even if it is to just try them out!

Boy Meets Girl will run from Tuesday 09 - Wednesday 10 June in Lyric Square as part of the Theatre in the Square series.

This is a non-ticketed free event for passers-by in Hammersmith to enjoy.

Theatre in the Square Announced

Posted by Lyric Hammersmith, 20 May 2015

Tuesday 09 June - Wednesday 24 June 2015

Today the Lyric Hammersmith announces the fifth year of Theatre in the Square, created by the Lyric for HammersmithLondon.

The programme for June 2015 will include Boy Meets Girl, Monotone Man and Citizen Squid.

The Lyric’s programme of shows invites passers-by to stop and enjoy free theatre in Lyric Square.

No ticket required.

BOY MEETS GIRL

Tuesday 09 June & Wednesday 10 June

Grab a pair of headphones from the Zest Theatre Tent and follow the journey of Boy & Girl who journey into the unknown in an interactive love story set in Hammersmith. Cut out the hubbub of King Street and watch how the relationship blossoms in front of you!

MONOTONE MAN

Tuesday 16 June & Wednesday 17 June

Monotone Man lives in a monochrome life, stuck in a routine of black and white as he commutes through London, alone, shutting off from the world and forgetting those around us… but what if that routine is broken, even just a little bit.  Join The Human Zoo as they explore the more colourful side of life.

Commissioned by Lyric Hammersmith, Watford Palace, Greenwich & Docklands and Latitude Festival.

CITIZEN SQUID

Tuesday 23 & Wednesday 24 June

A gigantic Squid has crawled into the square, but how did it get there? And what will we do with it? Hammersmith's latest resident needs your help. This interactive big puppet spectacle inhabits the Lyric Square.

Commissioned by Lyric Hammersmith and Watford Palace.
