A tale I heard
Writer and performer Rob Auton when asked to describe what he does:
“I just want to make a show that I value. If I have a funny idea, it can go in, if I have a more serious point then that can go in too. I put a word in the middle of a spider diagram and go to work on it.
The first year was a show about the colour yellow, called The Yellow Show. I made 3D-style glasses with yellow acetate for the audience to wear, so they saw the show through yellow tinted glasses. The show included bits about big car sponges, bananas and egg yolk, and I played Yellow Submarine on repeat at the start. I really enjoyed the experience and enough people did too for me to want to do a show the next year.”
