Talking material, design, budget with DEATH MATCH Costume Designer Amy Porter

This incredible show from Director: Katrina Cornwell and Writer: Morgan Rose is an explosive new work of physical theatre, which tackles the big issues – life, death and ambition – against the backdrop of a sporting arena

We caught-up with Costume Designer Amy Porter for a quick chat this week in between the craziness that was bump-in
