The beginning of the Everyman rebirth

The regeneration (in its truest and least buzzword-y sense) of this section of urban fabric will indeed bring new and more vigorous life to the street frontage. Over the next two years we will watch the skeleton of the new theatre growing tall, the layers of skin forming protection, the veins and arteries of cabling fixed into place and finally, in late 2013, we will restart its heart - the first show that will welcome back audiences from a very long interval.
The handover from our fabulously efficient demolition contractors, Sloyan Doyle, to the wonderfully experienced team at Gilbert-Ash today marks the beginning of the rebirth of the Everyman.
The handover from Sloyan Doyle to Gilbert-Ash, L to R: Gerard Sloyan, Kevin Doyle, Tony Sloyan, Mike Cook, Deborah Aydon, Robert Longthorne, Gemma Bodinetz, Ivor Wilson, Sylvia Hebden, Karl Doran
From the pouring of the foundations to the final brick in the chimneys, we know that Gilbert-Ash will deliver our vision for the next incarnation of the Everyman with care and craftsmanship, as they have with all their other projects.
The merging of the construction and arts sectors can sometimes be jarring, but in Gilbert-Ash we have found a team of creative thinkers, whose thoughtful consideration for the project is not dissimilar to the thought and consideration invested in our productions. And so it should be – this is a pretty heavyweight show. And whoever you speak to who’s involved in this project - whether it be the Design Team, Sloyan Doyle, Gilbert-Ash or the theatres’ team – we’re all determined to create something truly stunning in time for the opening night.
