Just finished teaching on the design course at RWCMD. Some really talented international designers. Cant wait to see their final exhibition next month.
Had a wonderful time directing Rattigan FLARE PATH at Italia Conti in Feb/March. What a wonderful play with glorious writing. He really is a Master
Was honoured to be nominated as Best Director in the GREAT BRITISH PANTOMIME AWARDS. Didn’t win but had a great night at the New Wimbledon Theatre. I think these are really important awards. Fantastic that this organisation exists. The establishment is so good at ignoring pantomime and it is a very important part of british theatre. Its is generally ignored alongside puppetry, mask work and young peoples theatre!!
In the middle of doing the prework for PEGGYS SONG by Kath Chandler a new play I am directing for the National Theatre of Wales. Its part of a series of new plays that celebrate the magnificent NHS
In July I am directing A DAUGHTERS A DAUGHTER by Agatha Christie for Suffolk Summer Theatre in Southwold. I love the play and I’m really looking forward to my now annual trip to the east coast
