Tori founded the now multi award nominated INTERVAL PRODUCTIONS in 2009 and has produced eight musicals (seven of them entirely new British Musical Theatre writing), countless gigs and an Arts Council Funded season of new writing under that banner.

 

"With Interval Productions, I wanted to create a collaborative environment where artists could thrive. It started as a platform for new talent - a place where writers and performers could be discovered, but we quickly realised we were equally passionate about updating the musical theatre genre for a new audience. We create work that sounds modern and commercial and that is set in the UK today. A lot of musical theatre fits a mould, and we're interested in creating work that defies that.

 

It's all tick boxes nowadays, but in 2017, so few of us fit into one, simple box. We are about honest, raw, diverse work and current stories that represent all shades, shapes, sizes and sexualities. So much of theatre, on and off stage looks the same - I rarely see myself represented, and I'm sure I'm not alone in that feeling. Theatre needs to start reflecting what we see on a tube carriage, and until it does - we need to try harder.

 

Interval Productions still have a long way to go and a lot more tightly locked doors to keep banging on (gatekeepers aren't too keen on us disrupters) but we're on the right path and we welcome likeminded individuals along for the ride."
