Laura Turner: Developing Fury
Writer Laura Turner from Tattershall used her Artists Respond funding to support the development of her new theatre company, Fury Theatre. Fury Theatre was established just before lockdown and centres its work on the female experience.
The Artists Respond funding has enabled Laura to attend to the business and strategic development of the company, its logo and online look. She has become skilled in navigating various social media platforms and has succeeded in generating over 1500 followers!
Laura has also used the funding to research stylistic qualities of writing theatre for an online audience, recently writing her first play for Instagram, The Power of A Look. As we move to Covid endemic times, Laura looks forward to Fury Theatre and She Productions taking their collaborative work into prisons.
Laura describes the support from St Hugh’s Foundation as:
“Being absolutely invaluable to me being able to develop the company in its early days, and I'm so excited about where 2021 and beyond will go!”
