Golem 1

Since late 2011 Tom de Freston and Max Barton have been collaborating on The Golem Project. Tom de Freston has been making a body of paintings and Max Barton a new play in response to Gustav Meyrink’s novel ‘The Golem’. The showcase at The Millicent Fawcett Theatre (Westminster) was an opportunity to see a number of the paintings and a first full draft of the play. The wonderful masks were designed and made by Russell Dean (Strangeface Theatre), with the Golem masks based on designs by Tom de Freston. The play was written and directed by Max Barton, with original music by Chris and Max Barton. Tom de Freston was Artistic Director of Design for the play. The photographs of the showcase were taken by Chris King.
