Film maker: Dominic Brouard

Costume Designer Mark Thompson talks about his designs for the 18th century costumes in Jame Lloyd's production of She Stoops to Conquer, alongside actors David Fynn and Cush Jumbo who talk about their costumes and getting into character before the start of the show. 


The Costume Department at the National Theatre expands far beyond the main workroom where the ladies makers and gents tailors make costumes. There's also a Dye Shop, Wig Department and Costume Propmaker. Crucial to the process of putting on shows are the dressers and maintenance staff in the running wardrobes.
