Well, since we debuted our new show, Behind the Wallpaper, at the Bay Theatre last month, we have certainly had a positive buzz in the community about the play!
We had had calls from:
Channel 4 News
BBC Radio Solent
They kindly did an interview with Felicity Ayles, one of our friends who we worked with very closely throughout the writing process. She, herself, suffered with Postnatal Depression after her son came into the world 6 weeks early.
You can listen to the interview here:
The Drama Point
We've had an interview with a fantastic new website called The Drama Point (www.thedramapoint.co.uk). They are also sending a reviewer to our show at the Charlton Down Village Hall so keep your eyes peeled for that.
You can read the interview here:
Blackmore Vale Magazine
Blackmore Vale included an article on their website advertising the tour. The article can be viewed here:

Rummage Theatre will be touring ‘Behind the Wallpaper’ from June 2014 in theatres and venues across Dorset. Our tour has two main aims…
1. To raise awareness of postnatal depression and postnatal psychosis. At least fifteen percent of new mothers experience some form of postnatal depression. For two in every one thousand new mothers, Postnatal Depression develops into something far more frightening – Postpartum Psychosis. Within just a few days, they can experience hallucinations and feel disconnected from reality. In extreme cases, women have been known to take their own lives and sadly, the lives of their new baby. We are planning to work closely with a number of postnatal depression charities and organisations in an attempt to raise awareness of the subject and help to erase the taboo surrounding mental health issues.
2. To bring innovative, stimulating and inspiring new theatre to audiences in Dorset. We are passionate about touring our work in villages and communities that might not otherwise have access to the arts (be it for health, economic or logistical reasons.)
We are appealing for funding to help finance the travel and accommodation costs of the tour as well as helping to fund the purchase of set, props and costume.
Well, well, well! We hope you've all had a fabulous Easter. We certainly did, we now have chocolate running through our veins! We spent the first week of the Easter holidays in the Bay Theatre, building our set, playing with projection and silhouettes, blocking, writing music and having some photos taken by photographer, Matt Ayles. And here they are!
