BRENDA doesn’t think she’s a person.
However, the creative team behind the show coming to The Yard in September are wholly human.
Let’s meet the team:
E V Crowe – Writer
E V Crowe is infamous for her supernaturalistic takes on human emotions with unexpected heroes ranging from a gay primary school teacher to 10 year old girls at boarding school.

Caitlin is an emerging theatre director whose productions have gone on to great acclaim for her work with actors to convey true emotion on stage. Her production of And I & Silence transferred from London’s Finborough Theatre to New York.
“Under Caitlin McLeod’s direction the four actresses infuse Wallace’s work with deep feeling.”
The New Yorker on And I & Silence
James is a talented designer with a penchant for creating unusual and memorable designs for the stage. His recent work includes for Eastern Angles’ Chicken at Edinburgh Fringe & the UK tour/New York transfer of CUDDLES.
‘In its creepy squalor, the set, by James Turner, itself sends a flurry of chills down your spine’
New York Times on CUDDLES
Richard Williamson – Lighting Design
Richard has a cracking portfolio of interesting lighting designs for shows at the Arcola Theatre, Ovalhouse, Swan Theatre (RSC) & Roundhouse. He’s also no stranger to The Yard working with us on some inventively designed shows; ‘A Conversation’ by Nigel & Louise & Pied Piper.
David Gregory – Sound Design
David Gregory has made sound designs for a huge range of productions including recently When We Were Women at The Orange Tree, These Trees Are Made Of Blood at Southwark Playhouse & Contact.com at Park Theatre.
