Ripples....a dramatic journey



I wanted to write something about ‘Ripples’ as I feel this play has been on its own dramatic journey from the original idea to where it is today in its newfound digital form.

I was away in Bulgaria at the time, the sun was shining and I was really excited about beginning a new…

Go Tell the Bees! The TEAM party continues...
