Declan Randall Lights Scuttlers at RADA

Michael Eddy

The Royal Academy of Dramatic Art (RADA) staged the London premiere of Scuttlers in its city center George Bernard Shaw Theatre (GBS) with a lighting design by Declan Randall, a South African theatre lighting specialist living in the UK. Scuttlers, directed by Hannah Eidinow, is an intense drama about the struggles and power politics of 19th century Manchester street gangs set against a steaming, grinding industrial revolution backdrop bringing massive social change and great uncertainty. The work was written by Rona Munro in response to the UK’s unsettling spate of urban riots in 2011.
