Blind / Doing the Business by Doug Lucie
Triple Jump Productions presents Blind / Doing The Business, a double bill by Doug Lucie questioning the price of sponsorship in the arts, at the Studio at Courtyard Theatre, Islington, north London from 21 Jan to 23 Feb 2014.
Directed by Sean Turner & Saul Reid, designed by Katie Unsworth-Murray.
The stage premiere of BLIND, a bleak and sometimes scathing study of the British contemporary art world. A wealthy, taste-making gallerist turns his hard-drinking enfant terrible protege into a household name. As she publicly self-combusts though, he coldly transfers his attention to an aspiring artist - one with a mysterious patron of his own. Cast includes Daniel York, Cameron Harle , Janna Fox , Julian Bird
The revival of short play DOING THE BUSINESS suggests that the gift of sponsorship comes at a price. It imagines a meeting between two old Cambridge pals, one now an Artistic director of a theatre with a deficit to cover, the other a sponsorship manager for a large corporation. Cast includes Jim Mannering, Matthew Carter .
