Thanks from all of us here at team AFOAF and Another Day!
It’s been three weeks since the company of Another Day took their final bow… so we thought it was about time for a jaunt down memory lane (Blackfriars Road). Click on the link below to see the beautiful production photos by Bogdan Staiculescu.
“FIVE STARS: A truly amazing piece of theatre where the sights and sounds of the ordinary world enhanced the action.”
True theatre doesn’t have to take place in a huge Victorian building with a stage, proscenium arch, fancy sets, etc and “Another Day” the latest show from A Friend of a Friend Productions, proves this admirably with a site-specific promenade theatre show making the area around the London borough of Blackfriars a stage in its own right. The show, commissioned by the local authority to produce art that embraces and involves the local community, uses not one but 6 playwrights who base their own plays on stories and reminiscences from the Blackfriars population, whilst also contributing to an over-arching single story. A tough call you might think but Producer Susanna Narvaez and Director Patrick Maubert really delivered the goods on this project.
“FIVE STARS: Don’t let the cold weather put you off as the performance of this cast will definitely warm your hearts and make you smile.”
Set in modern day Blackfriars in South London we follow the stories of various locals who tell their own tale. Another Day is a site-specific promenade performance which takes us on a journey of what it means to live and be a part of a community in London.
