A Theatre Project

by Richard Pilbrow

Triumph, Disaster, and Renewal that changed Stage Lighting and the Shape of Theatre. This is the story of an upstart company, Theatre Projects, in the world of British Theatre that created the stage lighting design profession and revolutionized theatre lighting, sound and technology, then went on to become, today, the world's leading theatre design consultancy. Along the way, Theatre Projects became a West End producer and one of Europe's largest lighting, sound, and AV suppliers. Reckless over-expansion led to disaster. A gripping tale of the rise, fall, and re-emergence of an artistically-motivated enterprise in the theatre. Six decades that changed stage lighting, sound, and theatre technology, and transformed the shape of theatre space around the world. An autobiographical story that takes you behind the scenes of a theatrical revolution with this backstage adventure that will challenge, provoke, inspire, and entertain all who work and love the creative world of theatre.
