Designing Only A Day - An Interview with Jason Southgate

Posted on 16 January 2015

With only a few short weeks until the opening of our new play for ages 7-11, Only A Day, we were thrilled to be able to sneak a peek at Jason Southgate’s circle-of-life inspired set design for the show earlier this week. As well as talking us through the Model Box, Jason treated us to a preview of some of his wonderfully creative costume designs for the show which include an urban fox (sporting hoodie and baseball cap), a violin-playing cricket and a wild boar dressed in baggy pants, army boots and a full-length parka!

You can preview a selection of Jason’s designs by clicking on the gallery to your right and in our video below.

A fox and a wild boar keep watch over the hatching of a mayfly. Aware that it lives for only a day, they are faced with a dilemma. Who cares about a mayfly anyway? But when they meet a beautiful flying insect, who has spent years preparing to hatch into the world, they have to think again. So begins a great adventure in which nothing will ever be the same.
