Have now completed casting for BLYTHE SPIRIT which I will be directing this summer in Aldeburgh. Really looking forward to it and I have a fantastic cast. A new organisation this year, but we are doing our best to further the vision of our patron Jill Freud. A visionary ! That’s all happening in July/August
In August I will be running workshops in West Wales for the Pint Size Play Season. A truely fantastic international organisation. A competition to find 10 new short plays that the company perform in pubs throughout Pembrokeshire. Inspirational. Google them and buy their scripts. They are fantastic material for workshops and performance
The National Theatre Wales are bringing back my production of Kath Chandlers PEGGYS’SONG performed by the magnificent Christian Patterson and touring this autumn to theatres throughout Wales. I’m so pleased because it’s a great show

Lisa Godard also returning to give her Fairy God Mother…hurrah……and they have extended the run!!!
Many of you probably know that 2018 was a very tough year for me as I lost nine dear friends to early deaths , including Helen Griffin, Frank Vickery and David Johnson. Also my beloved friend and mentor Roy Bailey.
I am pleased to say that I have been successful in setting up archives for Helen and Franks work. Swansea University will be taking Helens Archive and The National Library of Wales in Aberystwyth will be taking Franks. I am really proud to have done this. Their work is important .
I’ve been really busy painting and printing in the last few months. I just adore it. Later this year I am going to be building a studio in my garden where I can create and print new work. I’m so excited. Come and visit and see the work please
I will be exhibiting at The Print Shed in September as part of h.Art. Herefordshire Open Studios.
I am also pleased to announce that I will be mounting a solo exhibition at The Torch Theatre, Milford Haven next March. It will be all new monoprints titled AT THE WATERS EDGE. I’m so enjoying creating the work.
That’s all for now.
