The Show

Words have been failing me in the last week. The show has opened to great success and the actors are amazing - more than I could ever have hoped for.
It has been a highlight of my career and the most immense honour to receive such an incredible review from Alison Weir.
Lots for developments are emerging for the future of the show. First stop is The Camden Roundhouse on Sunday!

Ist Dress Rehearsal

We've just had the first dress rehearsal. It was amazing....the actors have gone for a walk in the park now....by the time they've been through it twice more I don't think they'll be able to see straight.

Dress rehearsals

Dress rehearsals today. The actors have surpassed all expectations. We had the technical rehearsal on saturday. It went really smoothly....the yurt is a great place to work in....very calm and a briliant back drop for the action. Simon was superb on the technicals.
Notes today will be to think about the emotional freedom of Tudor England and to consider further the horror and ugliness of the fate of the characters.
Fleur and Joe will be in at 10.30 am for a 12 hour stint. I'll see the play through three times today. Can't wait!.
