Its been a busy year so far……
Directed OUR TOWN by Thornton Wilder at Italia Conti in London in January. What a magnificent play. Really enjoyed working with the students. It was so good to work on a great text and be very inventive. A real ensemble production. Adored it. Hoping to go back next January
Just opened Mike Kennys new play FOLLOW ME. Another great text. This has been in development for two years and its so good to see it on stage at last. Ive been working with a truly great and inspirational team Jay Lusted, actor. Chris Preece, composer /musician and Dom Phillips company manager. Three wonderful people. All so talented and committed but also visionary. We produced the show in English and Welsh. Its done a short tour of Wales. I really hope there is a further life for this play. Its one of my best, thanks to an amazing team. Also a very important play for today.
Just about to do my annual teach for the design department at RWCMD…..really looking forward it.
