Adrian Lukis, who starred in the renowned BBC TV adaptation of Pride and Prejudice, returns to the role of Mr Wickham.
Join Pride and Prejudice’s most roguish gentleman, George Wickham, on the eve of his sixtieth birthday, to lift the sheets on what exactly what happened thirty years on from where we left him…
‘A fine one-man show’ ★★★★ The Sunday Times
‘Twinkling mischief – Wickham is a figure of almost modern vulnerability’ ★★★★ The Telegraph
‘A requiem for a rogue’ ★★★★ Daily Mail
This was a one man show, a one hour monologue so our creative approach was focused around making sure our camera direction and shot choices were dynamic enough to keep the viewer engaged while also allowing the story to flow.
Our first idea was to turn the set around so we faced out into the auditorium. We then built a track the full length of the set which allowed us to use 2 dollies to move seamlessly from one side to the other. Lastly, we added in the dynamic movement of a steadicam. This was used at specific moments to bring the viewer into the world of George Wickham, along with adding energy and movement to the piece.
The overall ambition was for the people watching at home to not think about the camera and just enjoy the production. From the feedback we got, we definitely achieved that.
