    Background: This is the first press facility to visit the new Annexe of the Old Vic Theatre in Waterloo. Since this is about the most famous drama theatre in the world - apart from the Startford Memorial Theatre - we feel that it makes quite a good 35MM story.

    The Annexe was built to house the workshops and property sections of the Old Vic company and is now in full use. Please try to show the work in hand and link it with the more famous productions of the theatre - almost entirely devoted to Shakespeare. Please get an exterior GV of the theatre and of the annexe and then follow up with interiors of the section in use.

    Since this is a press call, there may be one or two famous names on hand. If there are please include them in tour coverage.

    You might also try to get shots of the old property department in the original theatre.
