Today we release our interview with Costume Cutter, Michal Shyne. Having worked in Theatre Clwyd's costume department for 25 years, Michal understands the importance of developing a cross-departmental raport and 'evolving' with a building and its inhabitants. 

Here, she discusses what initially drew her into the world of theatre costume and how a cutter negotiates between period, design, fabric, performance requirements and actors' tastes.
