‘Loud’ is a play by Colby Quinn adapted by Anastasia Bruce-Jones and starring Toby W and Beth H. I met up with the cast in the Judith E Wilson drama studio under the English faculty for a photoshoot. Gaia Lambert had procured us some UV paint and a big UV-lamp. It is always a lot of fun to play with good props. Body paint can be quite messy, but you often get great results.

We started with just a bit of paint on the hands, but that quickly spread as they acted out a couple of intimate scenes from the play.

Toby had to leave to go to a garden party, but Beth could stay a bit longer so we did a few more photos, and after a while Anastasia also started painting herself and joined in front of the camera.
