SparkBlog: Meet Lighting Designer Richard Owen 30/01/2019

Next up on the SparkBlog we have Lighting Designer Richard Owen…

1. What most excites you about SparkPlug?

It’s such a fantastic script and so lyrical that it excites me to create the lighting for the different locations also to work with Katie and Chris on such a brilliant set design and soundscape, it feels like as designers we have the license to have some fun with the production.

2. Describe the play in 3 words?





3. What was your family’s first car? 


Austin Allegro in brown.

4. What’s your favourite childhood artist or song?

Prince – 1999 Album/Little Red Corvette

5. What’s your talent show act?

There is a reason why I work behind the scenes, but I used to do very bad impressions of the Crossroads cast

6. Where are you most looking forward to visiting on the tour and why?

I love to see the show in different places, especially venues we haven’t visited before, Newcastle and Birmingham will be highlights.

SparkPlug opens at HOME Manchester from 13-23 February before touring nationally until 13 April 2019. Book now:
