This play is "set in the trendy bars, offices and galleries of contemporary London, in fast moving snapshots, Simon Bowen’s first full length play is a brilliant exploration of the nature of freedom."

Free doesn’t include many specified spot sound effects and minimal technical requirements, I decided to focus more on the sounds of London through out the play, Free. As a result, this enabled me to manage my time wisely by focusing more on the field recordings.
Themes are useful ways for me to understand what sound to use for example, freedom of control and exploring the nature of freedom set in London. For this reason, my first initial idea of sound was manipulation of the nature of London, creating a dramaturgy to the audience and demonstrating the journey the actors and audience were going through in relation to sound, the battling between the nature of the world and society.
