Hordern Ciani Limited - Leatherhead Rep

Production photography

I began my association with Hordern Ciani Limited in April 2018 when they brought their first season of Leatherhead Rep to my local theatre. I had exclusive access to photograph rehearsals, the Gala Opening Night and all three productions: Yes Prime Minister, The Secret Garden and Communicating Doors.

They asked me join them at The Mowlem Theatre in Swanage to photograph their Summer 2018 rep season (Promotional Shots, Waiting For God, The Railway Children and Communicating Doors) and their Autumn 2018 season at the Leatherhead Theatre (Promotional Shots, Gala Opening Night, Waiting for God, The Railway Children and Season’s Greetings). In between I photographed The Secret Garden at Wanstead Fringe.

Most recently, I photographed The 39 Steps, the first show in their 2019 Summer Season at The Mowlem in Swanage.

Leatherhead Rep - Autumn Season 2018 - The Railway Children

Leatherhead Rep - Autumn Season 2018 - The Railway Children

It was interesting to see the same musical that I’d enjoyed during the summer in Swanage, with many of the same cast, directed by someone new: Michael Strassen had a very different take on the show

Some elements of the set and many of the props were stripped away, and a track was laid across the stage at The Leatherhead Theatre to carry a miniature steam locomotive, Augusta, on loan from Surrey Society of Model Engineers

Leatherhead Rep - Spring Season 2018

The final show in the Spring Season was Alan Aykbourn’s Communicating Doors, directed by Rebecca Gadsby.

This first photo of Emma Mulkern as Phoebe was used as a poster outside The Leatherhead Theatre to promote the show during its run - the first of many of my photos that have appeared on theatre posters for shows by Hordern Ciani Limited

My photos of this show were used in reviews by Essential Surrey and Muddy Stilettos Surrey
