Please have a look at photographer Geraint Lewis‘ online gallery, and be prepared to stay for a while. Maybe you’d like to start with the portraits (including the late Malcolm McLaren, Anna Chancellor, Alan Cummings and Christopher Ecclestone, to name but a few) or New York?

There’s also a collection of his pictures of “The Grapes of Wrath”, the production in which Damian O’Hare played Tom Joad. 62 pictures of the cast, probably taken during rehearsals for Chichester Festival Theatre last summer.

“Grapes of Wrath”: Dialect Coaching

Posted in festivals, grapes of wrath, theatre with tags , , , on 17 August, 2009 by ambarussa

CHICHESTER OBSERVER: THE GRAPES OF WRATH
Interview with Julia Wilson-Dickson, dialect coach

“(…) If the accents are authentically Oklahoma and just as importantly consistently so, then there’s a good reason buried in your programme. (…)”

While the first paragraph of the article is a wee bit at odds with the reviews, this makes for interesting reading. It will give you some insight into the work of a dialect coach.
