Epsom Downs

BY HOWARD BRENTON

RICHARD BURTON COMPANY

1977. The Jubilee Derby at Epsom racecourse.

As God Save The Queen meets Anarchy in the UK we mingle with the crowds as the cast play over fifty characters including punters, jockeys, bookies, horse owners and horses - all dreaming of a big win on the big day. Get ready to enjoy all the fun of the races in this theatrical spectacular.

Phoebe and Lizzie together designed and sourced 50+ costumes and enough fake grass to turf out the entirety of RWCMD's Bute Theatre. The audience sat on the seating dock which overlooked a rolling hill leading on to the racecourse, where the action took place.

Les mamelles de Tirésias

BY FRANCES POULENC

A CONCEPTUAL OPERA DESIGN PROJECT

 

Set and Costume design: Phoebe Tonkin

Director: Adele Thomas

Project tutor: Chris Marfleet

Venue: Wales Millennium Centre

Inspired by the complete and utter madness of Poulenc's Opera, I focused my design on the switching of traditional gender roles. 'Husband' hangs out his 40,000 babies to dry as he struggles to comprehend the the transformation of his home life, before falling in love with the local Policeman. Meanwhile, his wife travels the world, switching careers.

The typical French town houses dominate the set. Each room is invaded by the babies and their trails of destruction. The set acts as a chalkboard 'transformable' world, where things are constantly erased and reinvented. The surreal newspaper tree represents the influence of the media, towering over the set with it's headlines.
