Arson About

Hey hey hey, long time no see. No, I ain't been inside. No, I ain't joined the navy, neither. Here's a little bit of old material, a couple of posters designed to promote a course production of Max Frisch's The Arsonists, also known as the Fire-Raisers, the Firebugs and the Fire-Starter-Twisted-Fire-Starter, yuk yuk.

This was the teaser poster with a little slogan the production team came up with, which works pretty well, reflecting the tone and subject matter of the play. It does 'wry' and 'sinister' well.

This was the finished article, plastered all over the walls of York University to advertise our bold new step forward in theatre. That being "make a set, get people near to it, say the words loud".
