Hello, and thank you for visiting my site. I hope that you'll return often and always find something of interest about my world and what inspires me to pick up a pen. (This is a figure of speech, unfortunately. My handwriting is terrible!) Here's what I've been up to recently...
What could possibly compete with a stellar performance from Simon Brett, multi-talented writer and raconteur par excellence? He set the bar very high indeed and I particularly enjoyed his take on ‘Under Milk Wood’ and the recent proliferation of gloomy Scandinavian crime dramas.
HOWEVER, the seven plays performed in this year’s round of ‘Swanwick Page to Stage’ had the audience alternating between tears of emotion and tears of laughter. With perhaps equal amounts of serious drama and comedy, there was certainly plenty to enjoy. Even I – a reluctant thespian these days – was persuaded to tread the boards again and I had a whole line to myself in Cathy Grimmer’s play about a family in disarray.
Above is a photo call for everyone involved. You can just about see me in a turquoise jacket, seated at the front with Cathy standing behind me.
