Behind-The-Scenes At The Almeida Theatre

On #WorldTheatreDay 2020 we step behind the "wall" to look at what goes on backstage before, during and after performances.

Photographer Marc Brenner has worked with us over the last few years to capture what it takes to make a production, from technicians and stage managers to actors and costume supervisors, we celebrate the many people who make the shows run night after night.
