London Stories brought together 35 true stories told by the individuals who lived them, offering each audience member the chance to journey through the building to hear 6 stories live. As Producers, myself and Richard Dufty had the challenge of balancing care for the group of storytellers, a collection of extraordinarily diverse - lively, intelligent, sometimes fragile - individuals with the logistical challenges of getting enough audience members through the door every night to balance the budget! It was the most amazing project to be involved with because it felt so live - really we were scratching it up until it opened (well, and beyond). One performer was admitted into an eating disorder clinic directly before the show opened and was adamant that she still wanted to remain involved, so we took the decision to film her story. That changed the whole fabric of the show. The project felt completely amorphous until about the third night after opening - it crystallised into its final form as we went along. For that reason it was one of the most exciting, affecting projects I have ever worked on.
