Profile Information

What I do:
Photo to come later, when I can find one I like. I'm retired (early) thank God, from banking (never again) and am now an undergraduate with the OU for my BA in Literature. It'll take a few years, but worth it. I've been active in Amateur theatre for over 30 years in just about every capacity going; acting, singing, dancing, technics (make-up),directing and writing; I've also worked with professionals as makeup man and dresser for Opera and done touring theatre in Cornwall as part of the St Endelion Festival back in the 1980's. I love theatre: period, it doesn't matter what it is. I'm a member of the Cardiff Shakespeare Readers. I believe in anything to do with the Arts and the promoting of them especially through live theatre. I survived the ESC Wars of the Roses in the early 90's and love Stratford when I can get there, though The Globe is now easier to get to. I'm on facebook under my full name, so please feel free to contact me.

The First Year

Talk about diversity!!!! Congrats to NTW on the launch and making me drool. I know, there won't be everything to please everyone, but that's what theatre's about: you can't please everyone all the time...but you can have a damned good try. And if you think 'it's not for me' try it and see - you never know.

Which brings me to a salient point. There will be productions that people would love to get to, but due to circumstances, travel, work, etc., won't be able to. You'll see where… Continue

Here we go again, good old Sky Arts 1. Not Theatre Live this time, but Theatreland, starts Sky 1, Thursday 30th July at 8.00pm for half an hour.

Part 1 goes behind the scenes at Waiting for Godot at The Haymarket, inc a peek at rehearsals. It looks like a series on the whole of theatre and the problems and realities of running a place, such as The Haymarket. The Radio Times refers to this as 'another straightforward documentary series'.

For anyone interested in all aspects of… Continue

Theatre Live

After the success of the RNT's transmisison of 'Live' theatre in Cineworld and other cinemas, now comes another first, this time for Sky digital television: Theatre Live. And for anyone involved in theatre in any way, shape or form, this has to be required viewing.

For those without Sky and Sky Arts 1 in particular the premise is this. Six novelists, with no prior playwriting experience, are asked to write a 30 minute play for televison to be broadcast 'live' on Sky Arts 1, at 9.00pm… Continue

Relishing the language

Back in May the Cardiff Shakespeare Readers spent a glorious evening studying the Sonnets, perhaps the most concentrated form of play-writing in verse since Chaucer. Each sonnet becomes a stepping stone along a young man's path through life; something mirrored by Hogarth in his cartoons of the Rake's Progress a century plus later.

Studying several, but not all, of the sonnets we brought out the truth of them, the hidden meanings which, if they'd been studied that way when I was at… Continue

Hi Stephen - I see you've got the hang of the site, already! Didn't I tell you it would be right up your street?
By the way, loved Dan's face on Friday night!
