This coming-of-age play about a teenage boy from Croydon who works as a lifeguard and dreams of being a world-class country & western dancer was obviously a lot of fun to work on.

Although never explicitly said in the script, something we spoke about for the sound design was giving a sense of Dolly Parton as a sort of 'Fairy God Mother' figure. Cue manipulating samples from Dolly Parton songs to layer and hide in other elements of the sound design, in order to imbue the whole thing with 'the essence of Dolly'.

Honestly it wasn't fun at all.
