For Short. Theatre Company

Stephanie and I saw a new production of the play ‘Anatomy of a Murder’ by Elihu Winer, made famous in 1959 with its film version by Otto Preminger. The play was performed in a court room near Blackfriars in London so you feel completely immersed in the experience. Cast members sit with you and then are called up as witnesses – it’s completely gripping. The production runs till 27 July – you can book online here.

The way the play has been put on offers a fantastic example of the way young people today are being innovative and creative. Matt Jessup, who heads up  For Short.Theatre Company explains how this group of actors are working in an exciting way:

  1. There is something really special about small-scale, low-budget productions when put on by innovative people. The best production of The Cocktail Party I have ever seen was in a small theater, converted warehouse space, in San Francisco’s Mission District. This was about 20 years ago. Not at all surprising that the Eureka Theater Company has grown by leaps and bounds since then.
