Not yours, not mine. But it's all we've got."
First and Fiftieth
During the Covid-19 crisis I am working on audio productions of my own and other people's work. Along with many colleagues, particularly those working with
Arbery Productions, I hope to return to live theatre soon.
Weekly podcasts from Arbery often feature my work as writer and director, including this one-woman play.
3 - 7 NOVEMBER 2020 provisional dates
WRITER / CO-DIRECTOR
I am excited that Junior Cross and I are creating a stage version of the classic Latin text The Satyricon.
A comedy of words and action. A spectacle that is funny, thought-provoking, uncomfortable, tragic, satiric and satyric. A view of sexual relations from the Roman perspective - and the Roman perspective viewed from today. A reminder that actors have a life beyond the stage. All this and more in The Satyricon.
Originally scheduled for June, The Satyricon will now premiere in the Festival Theatre Studio, Edinburgh on 4 November (preview on 3 November).
I was pleased to be directing Noel Coward's masterpiece Hay Fever for
the Edinburgh Graduate Theatre Group ("The Grads"). This would be the third production (after The Rose and Crown
in 2016 and Volpone in 2017) they entrusted me with and before Covid-19 struck.
Coward's work is deceptive - to create his light comedy requires intense preparation by the actors, who have to give pitch-perfect characterisations - but I was fortunate to have a talented cast who were creating a
memorably frothy and funny production and to have working with me assistant director Vanashree Thapliyal.
The production has provisionally been rescheduled for March 2021 and I hope that as many possible of the original cast will return. Uptodate information can be found on the
The Grads website.
