Much-loved theatre company Reading Between the Lines, in this their fifth year, brought you a modern history play of contemporary relevance, about the medieval King who founded Reading Abbey. With a team of some of the most ‘revolutionary and ambitious’ (The Stage) theatre makers in the country, RBL creates theatre of national significance.
Beth Flintoff’s Henry I of England was directed by long-time RBL collaborator, Hal Chambers and designed by Rosanna Vize, whose recent credits include Kneehigh and The Gate. Classical composer Rosalind Steele (RBL’s Twelfth Night) collaborated with DJ/Producer Benjamin Hudson (Much Ado About Nothing, Romeo and Juliet) in order to create a truly spine-tingling original score. Gareth Taylor created the stunning movement for the play (Curious Directive) and Oliver Welsh designed the lighting (Dragons Den and the London 2012 Olympics). The experienced acting company included Jack Beale (Kneehigh, Old Vic), Saskia Portway (Bristol Old Vic, National Theatre) and Toby W Davies (West End, co-Artistic Director of RBL).
