Stephanie Arditti

A lovely obituary here from Bunny Christie for Steph who was a wonderful costume supervisor. We never worked directly with each other, but I spent many hours with her and Jan Bench (a supervisor I do work with often) on trains to and from Stratford and always found her to have great sense of humour and fine sense of design style. Her funeral last week showed the great depth of camaraderie and friendship within the design and costume community . There was standing room only with some still out in the rain . So many designers, supervisors and all the makers from both  the NT and RSC, but also many freelancers turned up to give her a fitting send off to the tune of ‘Happiness’. A loved and valued friend to so many and an important reminder of how crucial the role of a supervisor is the the creation of great theatre.
