Taking a break

There’s nothing quite like an evening spent reading, curled up on the sofa with the hound and a glass of wine!

I’ve been between plays for a couple of months so I’ve taken the chance to make a dent in the pile of play scripts I’ve allowed to build up.

I have a mixture of classics, obscure, new and old plays. Six in total.

The Second Mrs Tanqueray by Pinero

The Hound of the Baskervilles bySir Arthur Conan Doyle adapted for the stage by Simon Williams

Dial M for Murder by Frederick Knott

Spider’s Web by Agatha Christie

Rules for Living by Sam Holcroft

The Kingfisher by William Douglas Home

Hopefully I’ll get some inspiration for future projects!

I also went  to Copenhagen for a long weekend and found a theatre museum. A lovely little place, full of photos, costumes, wigs. And a beautifully ornate auditorium. Gorgeous!

It’s the end of the hiatus now, though. Rehearsals are underway for the summer production of David Mamet’s ‘A Life in the Theatre’ and I am prompting – time to crack the whip!
