A few weeks ago I spent a fantastic 6 days backstage working on a new musical production of ‘Friend or Foe’ based on the novel by Micheal Morpurgo (the same author as War Horse). The production was a new musical arrangement written by the talented Ruth Lusby & Tim Brewster and Micheal Murpurgo himself even came along to see the show! As well as praising the production and cast I’m told he thought the hair was spot on!
In my role I was asked to create 1940s looks for the productions principal woman and young girls for the show’s sold out run. The story is set in the countryside during World War II and characters for the production included land girls, farmers wives, school children and mothers. With the actors often playing more than one role in the production I decided to create victory roll based hairstyles that gave an instantly recognisable 1940s look and that would stand up to multiple costume changes, dance routines and could be down quickly each night. Below are my pictures from a great week.
