Playwright Laura Lethlean took up residence in the Black Box for three weeks in March 2017 to work on her play Where the Breath is Kept. During the residency, Laura used the space as a research facility to explore the impact that space and confinement can have on process, form and content in writing. Part set-design-trial, part giant pin-board, part writers den, elements of the space were designed to echo a solitary confinement cell – the setting of the play. Laura also invited visitors to contribute to her process through anonymous feedback boxes. At the end of the three week residency, a four-actor reading of her new draft took place in the space.
