I’m off topic with this post and off to the theatre on Sunday to see one of the most extraordinary shows conceived by one of the country’s finest companies: Stan’s Cafe. I work for Stan from time to time and was very excited when I first saw the set for The Cleansing of Constance Brown during rehearsals in an old factory in Digbeth. The company is lauded all over the world (I do not exaggerate – they’ve won export awards) but the chance to see them in Birmingham is quite rare.
Constance Brown is the final production for the Mac’s longstanding festival Moving Parts.
