Time to save a theatre

Up here on the North Pembrokeshire coast, there's not much in the way of theatre. And the one theatre we do have, Pembrokeshire County Council is intent on closing - by way of council cuts. Theatr Gwaun in Fishguard was (from the 1920s) a cinema, and still is - but from the 1990s it was reconfigured with stage and lighting for theatre and musical events.

Ah, I see - small world and all that! Are you going to Rhosygilwen for the launch? Richard said it would be a good chance for me to meet up with everyone.

I met her at the London Book Fair recently, officially I was there with Parthian, promoting another book they’re bringing out this Spring, called ‘Mrs D'Silva and the Shaitan of Calcutta’, it is a brilliant story, set in a school in Calcutta. We're trying to get money for an Indian screen adaptation. However, mainly I was hanging out with mates from the British Council in Kolktata whom I haven’t seen for ages and going to parties, apparently to make a film you have to go to lots of parties :-) Anyway at one of these parties, I met Penny and we got talking about your book.

Sadly not, I am directing a play in Huddersfield and I couldn't get there. I hear it was great. When's your book out? I look forward to reading it.
