ACTOR FRED PITTS AS "STEPHEN OF BLOIS" / PROMOTIONAL THEATRE PORTRAITS

Location: San Francisco
A few images from a recent commission of San Francisco based actor Fred Pitts in the title role of "The Arms and Armament of Stephen of Blois: part two of the Anarchy Quartet." A solo one act play performed live in The EXIT Theatre in San Francisco, as well as being live-streamed worldwide. Written by Stuart Bousel and directed by Nick Trengrove.

We were able to create the imagery at Fort Point in San Francisco, and although the rangers wouldn't let the dulled broadsword in, we did manage a few of those images outside the fort on the grounds.

It's always a pleasure working with actors, as they are highly aware of their energy and visual projection, with the ability to take direction fast and offer their own creativity to any and all ideas. Fred was great to work with, as well as Nick the director.

Stuart the playwright (award winning, highly talented, hilarious and fun) invited Katherine and I (she'll be playing Eleanor of Aquatine in part three) to be there as two of only four audience members during the performance four days ago in San Francisco, which Fred performed wonderfully in. Such an honor to be in the Theatre for such an intimate show, especially as the first audience members in 15 months since the C-19 pandemic, with us all celebrating afterwards at a rooftop spot in the city.
