‘a perfect marriage of words and music’
Two Tigers features in International KM100 Festival
Casson is thrilled that excerpts from her kaleidoscopic Modernist musical are to be broadcast as part of an exciting online festival this November. A film, made specially for the centenary event by English Cabaret, shows songs filmed at the Edinburgh premiere this summer intercut with moments from her recent interview with MusicalTalk.
Hosted from Katherine Mansfield's native New Zealand, the festival comprises creative responses to her writing from musicians, artists, poets and writers, alongside lectures from noted specialist scholars and philosophers, from all around the world.

Two Tigers at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe
100 Years ON...
This January marked the centenary of the death of Katherine Mansfield. The original award-winning show was first staged in the centenary of Mansfield's birth. Now 'a lifetime on' Casson has been writing a series of blogs musing on different aspects of Mansfield and her relationship with 'Tiger' John Middleton Murry as she worked at re-imagining Two Tigers. The latest Mansfield Musing looks at how it has become a musical as modernist as the writer herself.
