The Factory Theatre

A few shots of performances by The Factory Theatre in London. Unforunately my scanner won’t scan a bunch of the negatives because they are too dark and it can’t tell where the shots end.  Film negative scanner recommendations, anyone?

I find that photography never does the theatre justice; you really must be there in person to see the brilliance of the performers.

‘Round 2’. Round 2 is their newest production – small plays where the audience gets to choose who plays what role beforehand. A different experience every week.

‘The seagull’. In this production they bring no props; they use items found in the theatre and they ask the crowd to bring props with them. The cast varies every week, and while they follow the story of Chekov’s ‘The Seagull’, all the scenes are ad lib.

P.S. go and see ’round 2′ by The Factory at the Electricity Showrooms from March. http://www.thefactorytheatre.co.uk/

Geeky stuff: Leica M6, Leica 35mm 1.4 Summilux, Kodak Tri-X +2


  1. Amazing shots, sounds like a really interesting experience.

  3. Hey just stumbled onto your blog, nice photos! :) For the scanner problem, which one are you using? I think most scanners have the ability for you to manually choose the area of the negative they are going to scan, just don’t use the thumbnail preview option.
