They Shoot Horses...

As you may know the next collaboration between the Citizens' Theatre and Turning Point Scotland (hot on the heels of Ice Cream Dreams) will be an adaptation of They Shoot Horses Don't They?...a story which is known by many as the 1969 Jane Fonda film.

Designer Neil Haynes, has completed the set model and work has commenced on creating the backdrops.
Along with many other magical secrets, the Citizens' Theatre is home to the only original working paint frame in Scotland. This fantastic space is located by our workshops, behind the main stage, and has a platform where scenic artists can paint backdrops which are winched up to allow easy access to huge cloths.

As I arrived back to the theatre from a meeting with Alison (our Marketing Manager), we bumped into Neil Packham (who is directing They Shoot Horses...). He excitedly brought us to the paint frame to see the work so far. I think you'll agree this looks pretty impressive.

I can't wait to see the whole set now.
