The Right Stuff

SOSDF presents “The Right Stuff – figuring out the right show for you, right now.”

So you’ve done the show you always wanted to do… Now what? This workshop will help you to identify the next show you want to make happen. Taking Oscar Wilde’s The Importance of Being Earnest as its source text (a show written for a very different audience at a very different time), we’ll explore how to reframe classic stories for a contemporary audience – why certain stories work when they do (and why some don’t!) – and help you figure out the stories you want to tell.

Lu Kemp is a director, but the workshop is suitable for all creatives – anyone can be the creative lead that springboards a show, not just the director… Knowledge of the source text is helpful but not necessary to participation.

Lu is the Artistic Director of Perth Theatre. Productions include: Wilde’s The Importance of Being Earnest, Kes by Robert Alan Evans, Six Inches of Top Soil and the Fact it Rains by Kieran Hurley, Shakespeare’s Richard IIIKnives in Hens by David Harrower and Aladdin. She has directed for The Citizens, The Royal Lyceum Theatre, The National Theatre of Scotland, Artangel, The Tricycle, Almeida and The Royal Shakespeare Company.

Lu began her career as the Scottish Arts Council Trainee Theatre Director at TAG. She later trained on the LEM at Lecoq, Paris, and with Anne Bogart’s SITI Company, New York.
