'The Grinning Man': Musical Programme Notes (London)

Activity: Talk or presentation typesFestival, exhibition, performance


I was commissioned to write programme notes for the West End transfer of 'The Grinning Man' to Trafalgar Studios, a new musical that debuted at Bristol Old Vic in 2016 and is based on Victor Hugo's 1869 novel. These notes took the form of two articles: a biographical overview of Hugo, and a discussion of the novel's themes, history, and various adaptations on stage, screen, and in print (2k words in total). PDF available on request.
