Now, I don’t usually use tumblr anymore, but seeing as it’s all over the place here:
Since January I have been playing the role of Ashitaka in Wholehog Theatre’s stage play of Princess Mononoke.
We’ve currently completed two runs, one in London and one in Tokyo, Japan.
Both were beautifully received, the latter even more so!
We’re due to return to London for a two week run from the 18th of June, sadly the tickets sold out in under 4 hours for this run, but if you’re super lucky and don’t mind waiting around, there’s a chance a couple of seats might be available each night.
Anyway, this project has been an utter joy to be a part of and lead the cast and crew to meeting Miyazaki himself, and we were even lucky enough to be taken on a tour around the actual studios.
The cast and crew are bloody amazing, and all of us are dedicated and really believe in the work that we’re producing.
Hopefully we’ll make it across the seas with this beautifully faithful production again soon…
