Feel Good Friday

My my my...

How a lot can happen in one week.

The biggest news was the UK voting to leave the EU. But for me my attention turned to the rise in racial hate crimes in just one week as a result.

Feel Good Friday

As another chapter in my journey comes to a close I take a moment to reflect. Reflect on what's happened, what I've done etc

I recently went to the national football museum (as you do) and whilst walking around I saw this quote by Sir Alex Ferguson on the wall and I knew straight away that I had to use it

I thought that quote was absolutely brilliant… Continue

Experiments in co-writing

"Once upon a time, there was a father and son, and a mum."

I wasn’t expecting to write something that began “once upon a time” then again, I wasn’t expecting to write something at all.

I’m not a writer – but over the years I’ve co-written lots of performance text. Some exist on paper, but most exist only in the performers bodies…

There can be connotations of the words “Community Theatre” that are less than helpful. As a working professional in Theatre I've frequently come across assumptions that…
