In January 2018, The Courtyard Theatre in Hoxton will be showcasing Sam Shepard's Cowboy Mouth and Fool for Love.
We are Jess Beynon and Daisy Milner. We are the current production assistants for the Courtyard Theatre and are the project managers for the January to February 2018 slot. We have experience across many fields of theatre but are using this exciting opportunity to pull our skill sets together to produce and direct exhilarating revivals of our favourite playwright - Mr Sam Shepard.
In our directorial debuts we have made the decision to take these timeless classics from the page to the stage with a fresh artistic approach. We not only want to keep the significant memory of Shepard alive but simultaneously introduce his work to a new generation of audiences. Our theatre is also the proud venue of The Court Theatre Training Company and through this we are engaging with our alumni in a cross collaboration - bringing fresh drama school graduates on to a project of forever theatre.
This is a new challenge in the chapter of our lives and we are excited to provide opportunities for new talent to grace the stage. We are determined to not only give these pieces a new lease of life but to tell Shepard's stories in the way they were destined to told.
