Directorial Debut

I'm delighted to have two fabulous directing projects coming up.

In October I will be directing Frost on the Rose by T.B.Morris at the Assembly House, Norwich with the Great Hall Players.

Frost on the Rose' is a tense and riveting historical drama. The young Lady Jane Grey wants nothing more than to stay at home buried in her books. Her family, however, have more illustrious ideas for their daughter. Jane is pushed, pulled, and bullied onto the throne of England. But the bright light of glory is in danger of being extinguished when Princess Mary comes back to claim what is hers. The show will be performed 3rd - 7th October

The second show is Blood and Ice by Liz Lochhead and will be performed at the Sewell Barn Theatre.

In 1816, the Shelleys joined Lord Byron and his mistress Claire Clairmont on the shores of Lake Geneva. Young, carefree, and in love, Mary Shelley agrees to a bet to see who in their intimate group can produce the most horrifying tale. But as the dark shadow of reality creeps ever closer, she begins to realise that the most chilling story of them all might just be her own.

Liz Lochhead explores the nature of female creativity in this dark evocation of the romance between Mary and Percy Shelley.

It will be performed 11th - 13th, 17th - 20th January 2018.
