Dis Place is devised and produced by theatre company Esses & DeMesa as part of their residency at the Limehouse Town Hall. I have been a part of the development of this production since it was introduced to audiences during a scratch night at the Limehouse Town Hall at the beginning of the year. My role as stage manager entailed setting up and clearing the theatre space, taking inventory of all props each night, organising the audience and dividing them into groups, operating lighting and sound by cue, working closely with the lighting and sound designers as well as front of house responsibility. I also produce stage management reports after every show, evaluating the effectiveness of each performance.
