Project Description


What is it about that night?

“What is it about that night?” is a small drama that celebrates those things we don’t know normally get to see in theatre.
— Guide2Brighton

“What is it about that night?” is a secret musical for small audiences in the backstage spaces of a working theatre. The idea behind this one-woman show was inspired by Catherine’s experience of working backstage and of the quiet dramas that the audience don’t get to see. She wanted to find a way to perform that puts music right at the heart of the piece responding to both the fantasy and reality of the building itself. She originally developed it in January 2013 at the Theatre Royal Brighton and have since performed it as part of Caravan International Showcase, the Theatre Royal Margate, The Hexagon in Reading as part of the Sitelines Festival, Harlow Playhouse and The Kings Theatre in Southsea.
