Yes Feb and its cold and very wet. How my life changes!!!!!
I’ve just started putting together the scenario for Cheltenhams’ panto SLEEPING BEAUTY. Need to start writing the text soon when we have finalised the set. It’s always strange writing a pantomime in Feb. Just read the original story…..its very bleak and ruthless….not at all pantomimic!
Just received copies of the published PINT SIZED PLAYS. Two great new books. These are a series of ten minute plays from the competition I started judging a few years ago for Derek Webb a writer based in Pembrokeshire. Pint Size Plays was his brain child. Every year they receive plays from all over the world and the final ten are performed in pubs all over West Wales. It’s a brilliant idea. The plays are very diverse. Really useful for schools, youth theatres and colleges. Great new material for students to work on, pull apart and perform. Thank you Derek for inventing the idea and for asking me to judge and write the introduction to one of the books. I’m very proud of my involvement. If anyone needs more information please get in touch
I’m pleased to say that Helen Griffin and I are restaging CAITLIN by Mike Kenny as part of the Swansea Festival and the Dylan Thomas Centenary celebrations. Helen is magnificent in this piece. You MUST see her perform it….if you haven’t already. We will be reviving it in May at the Grand Theatre in Swansea. Can’t wait
Just starting to work on the design and casting for NOISES OFF as part of the Summer Season in Southwold. Its a great play and a real challenge to do on the stage in Southwold
The Australian actors have just finished the first leg of the HORRIBLE HISTORIES tour in Oz. The next leg is in April with a lot more dates added. It will also return during July / August
A number of new projects in the pipe line. More on them as they get real. What is it about this profession? You get nothing for a couple of months then three or four arrive at the same time and they all want you at the same time. It was ever so!!!!!
Anyway….back to Pantoland !!!!!!
