Howard Loxton states “There is no setting for this production beyond the space. In an empty shop sofas, armchairs, pouffés and dining chairs are lined up and grouped around a small empty square and inside the entrance and it is played against the white blinds which cover the windows on which the shadows of those outside are sometimes seen while the sounds of activity outside a reminder that this girl is part of the real world out there.”.

Continuous problem within society. Advertisement We have decided to use this play as an advertisement for knife crime, and therefore we will not use advertising for our performance of 'Random'. We intend to have one main character accompanied by a chorus planted in the audience.
The chorus will represent different types of people.
You can even argue that some elements of this approach are similar to those of Brecht. Directed by Sacha Wares in 2008.
One actress- Nadine Marshall.
Stripped back- just Marshall on stage
"dressed like someone you would see on the streets" (Kelleher:2009). Adapted into film by Channel 4.
Staring Nadine Marshall.
Directed by debbie tucker green.
Feature more than one actor yet still in monologue style. •Naturalistic with non-naturalistic elements.
•Follows our directors intentions.

Recognise the problem so we can compose solution
Regain emotional attachment
The idea that this could happen to anyone at any time
We want people to become for sensitsed to to the subject of knife crime
To create emotional connection and make people see there can be solutions but first have to recognise the problems
Statics- July 08/09 offences involving knifes totaled to 37,830, 7% of all serious violent crimes (Berman;2010)
the text itself
Specific Cases - Location
Become aware of the reality of the situation
Stop distancing ourselves with the situation
Realise this can happen to anyone
Attached to the issue Staging • We intend to put our performance on in knife crime hotspots as a touring production.
Because of this we use a versatile staging.
Programmes - instead of these including information about the actors, it includes information about knife crime.
Memorial style. Random Bring 'Random' onto the streets.
Be viewed publicly by many people
Making it public will reflect the crimes themselves from where they are happening
Address many stories at once.
We want everyone to stop and take something away from what they have seen. Our idea... Royal Court Theatre. (2008). Random Podcast. Available: http://www.royalcourttheatre.com/news/podcasts/random/.
