Producers James Quaife and Robin Rayner of New Frame Productions today said: "Without the restrictions of Covid-19 we'd never have the opportunity to collaborate with these brilliant creative people from all across the world. With the last 8 months being a difficult time for so many in the entertainment industry, it's also enabled us to reimagine the way we work, opening up new opportunities to defy the rules and reframe our stages."
Vox added: "2020 is clearly the year that changed everything. Adversity is nothing new in my life. I always find a way to express myself and connect with others.
"Creativity and art are healing and they will not be stopped! When you find people who support your vision and truly embody that collaborative spirit, obstacles become launch pads to discovery. Necessity is truly the mother of invention."
