How we can help

We experience the world through stories. Whoever tells the stories of a culture defines the terms, the agenda, and the common issues we face.

George Gerbner, media scholar

“Through speaking with Lesley Anne about producing theatre and building our company, what seems like an impossible mountain to climb was made achievable.” 
Cameron Mowat (actor, director)

Our roots are in Scotland, our work can reach across the world.

“Without Lesley Anne, 10 Ft Tall would not be moving in the direction of where it is currently – pre production for its first professional show. We are very grateful for her continued support and advice.”

Open Road directors have also lead in the way in Scotland in creating screen based versions of theatre productions that use film language and talent to offer a ‘film’ rather than ‘recorded theatre’ experience to screen based audiences. 

We bring a working knowledge of contracts, technology and IP issues, along with specific experience to your production, project, event or festival.

“Lesley Anne’s support with both small and large scale experimental projects of mine has been invaluable. It has enabled me to develop a script for a Scratch Night performance, produce a live music and drama performance through an Artist Exchange programme, and complete a successful Creative Scotland application for funding – all within the space of six months.”
Neil Cargill (writer, director)
