Sketches and polaroids by Janice Rider, no reproduction without permission.
‘Boogie Outlaws’ was a 1987 drama produced at Pebble Mill by Carol Parks, and directed by Keith Godman. It was written by Leslie Stewart and was about a band on the run from the police.
Janice Rider was the costume designer on the drama. The sketches are of Janice’s original costume designs, and the polaroids were taken on set, as a continuity record of the actor in the costume for that particular scene.
The following comment was made on the associated Facebook page by Paul Vanezis: ‘Boogie Outlaws was great. It would never get commissioned today!’
The top left hand sketch is not of Boogie Outlaws but is a sketch made for a costume worn by Julie T Wallace in Robin Midgeley’s theatre production of Putting on the Ritz at the Haymarket Theatre , Leicester . It was an adaptation of the TV series The Ritz by John Godber which was shot at Pebblemill .
