For November 2017 we workshopped Nine Foot Nine, a new play by Alex Wood, at Theatre Deli. Photos below, many thanks to all participants for contributing so much.
Nine Foot Nine is set in a dystopian world. It asks the simple question: What if, over a period of nine months, a disproportionate number of women on earth started to grow to 9 foot tall. What happens to society, to gender norms and social conventions?
How would a family cope?
This piece is in development stages and will be performing in London and touring to Edinburgh in 2018.
Alex Wood is a writer, theatre critic and film maker.
After graduating back in 2015, Alex actually started his career in marketing for an AI and data-driven advertising company, while moonlighting as a theatre blogger for Theatre Bubble. During this time he also developed a knack for videography, and has worked on short films that have featured as part of the BFI London Film Festival and screened at independent cinemas. Video work with The North Face was also shortlisted for the World Media Awards. Eventually, his passion for writing took over and he made the jump into working full time at WhatsOnStage.
As a freelance theatre marketing manager Alex has overseen campaigns for theatre shows including the national tour of the world premiere of Philip Pullman’s The Ruby in the Smoke and the award-winning Around the World in 80 Days. He also had a poem published when he was 12, it was called The Rim of a Teacup. It was about teacups.
