Lyndon March and Connor Mayes (left) have both been inspired by Frantic Assembly’s work on stage. The boys have also worked more closely with the company through its Ignition project, a national initiative developing new ways of increasing young men’s involvement in the arts. Connor went on to perform with the Ignition Theatre Company in The Fear, a highly energetic and thought provoking production at Toynbee Theatre in 2009.
