I was Sound Designer for The Red Tree. A Live streamed theatre show devised by Red Earth Theatre streamed to hundreds of schools across the country. BSL was the main language used in the production, along with some singing. The show was devised from a picture book by the same name. As it was streamed, the whole case was mic’d as were the instruments.

Sometimes the day begins with nothing to look forward to. You’re not sure what to do next or where to go

The Red Tree follows one child’s journey through what seems an unfriendly world. But it’s okay, there are helpers everywhere, hidden in plain sight, ready with their wise words and healing ways.

A joyful, funny and warm play about tricky feelings and how to manage them.

This stand-out, online production by Red Earth Theatre blends live music and song, puppets and dance. Our creative access – integrated sign language and songs, captioning and projections – adds to the playfulness and zing of the production.
