Caaw “Strange Pictures” – Reactions

“Strippers, Down & Outs, & Other Ne’er-Do-Wells”

[Review in PluggedIn Brighton, published September 26, 2019 by Chris Hibberd]

Strange Pictures? What does it mean? Half remembered memories of what you thought you saw. Did you? The new release from Caaw opens a window into a world of bourbon-soaked memories with jazz-inflected avant-garde music playing and burbling in the background. Captain Beefheart and Tom Waits are having a tussle over a perfume filled top hat whilst Dr John watches on from the bayou distractedly.

“Quirky, whimsical, melodic lines in the tradition of great storytellers, French Quarter benders, trickster music, broken glass drunken poetry of lovers and thieves…” – Margaret Garrett (Mr. Airplane Man)

Elephant’s Graveyard Review


Excellent review of Elephant’s Graveyard from Fringe Review – I’m really proud to have been part of this, and the play will now be a full production run next year!

“Billed as a rehearsed reading director David Eaton has managed more in the flexible NVT Studio space. With Kasha Goodenough on production and managing, Vanessa Barrett and Mark Green on seedy costume designs – this is a full costume performance. The overall scarlet/black detail of costumery is carried to Adam Kinkaid’s scarlet/black scene painting. Keith Dawson’s light design is unfussy. Leanne McKenzie’s light and sound operation comes to the fore in balancing the live musicians: Adam Hewitt music director, Becca Huggett singer, guitarist Matthew Clark and Neil Rocks on drums. Marie Ellis deserves notice for voice coaching.”
