"This year, the prices of everything have doubled … Now, something like this, a full set like this would cost you almost £1,000."

(Natalie Russell, Costume Manager)

"Like, you know, a single peacock feather has tripled in price, if not more than this. Over a pound for a peacock single peacock feather. Which is insane considering how many and how much we use."

first time in two years due to the health crisis
