This week we are bringing you the creatives behind the Curtain Call virtual play reading series “The Remote Read”.
This Saturday, we are producing a remote reading of Sir Tom Stoppard’s Play “A Separate Peace” Starring David Morrissey, Jenna Coleman, Denise Gough, Ed Stoppard and Maggie Service directed by award-winning stage and screen director Sam Yates. The reading will benefit the Felix Project and those professionals who have found themselves out of work during the Covid-19 Epidemic.
On today’s episode is Director Sam Yates.
Sam is an absolutely exciting young director, working on stage and screen. He was voted one of Screen International’s Stars of Tomorrow in 2016, and named a rising star in The Observer her in the UK. His productions have been Olivier nominated. We at Curtain Call are so grateful to Platform Presents co-producers Gala Gordon and Isabella Macpherson for suggesting Sam and then going out to get him. He’s phenomenal to work with and is exactly the right captain to steer the ship.
