Production Manager – Who Cares UK Tour
We are in search of a PRODUCTION MANAGER who will be able to realise and manage the technical and production aspects of a five week UK tour within non-theatrical settings.
The production manager will be responsible for ensuring all scenic, lighting and sound elements are tourable, specifically to non-theatre spaces of which most will have an extremely basic technical set up.
YOU MUST HAVE EXPERIENCE OF TOURING TO NON-THEATRE SPACES
The project is currently in very early stages regarding technical discussions, and we are in search of an experienced production manager who will be able to navigate non-theatre venues and their technical limitations.
Our aim is to tour to 5 – 6 venues a week, some of which will be schools that would require afternoon performances therefore the technical set up would need to be complete within half a day.
The Lowry and LUNG will tour Who Cares – a new piece of verbatim theatre – on a five week national tour (beginning at The Lowry and with a focus on the North West) to non-theatre spaces, community venues and schools. Who Cares examines the hidden lives of young carers and the pressures placed upon them in the context of a system that currently doesn’t support them.
The play gives an insight into the lives of three young carers, whose stories were created from an amalgam of four testimonies from young carers in Salford. Reflecting the diversity of caring roles that young carers undertake the characters are: Connor whose mum struggles to cope with depression and bipolar; Nicole who has been a carer since the age of four when her mother had a stroke outside her playgroup; and Jade whose father was paralysed in a motorbike accident.
