Friday 13th of September turned out to be an auspicious day to start the autumn tour of Night Terrors – the adaptation of 3 supernatural tales by E.F. Benson (most famous for his Mapp and Lucia comic novels). Gerard Logan as the Storyteller is at his usual brilliant best and the tour of one night stands up to and after Christmas is proving very popular.
October was spent in India working with Trinity College London, and it was a thrilling month that took me from the foothills of the Himalayas, to Trivandrum at the tip of South India and back up to Amritsar on the Pakistani border. As always in India some great work, terrific people and glorious culture chaos.
In November I said goodbye to the brilliant cast and company of my touring production of Agatha Christie’s The Mousetrap after its hugely successful ten month UK tour. And in January we re-launch the show for a similar national tour with another great cast. Google it to find out if the show comes to a theatre near you…but just promise not to tell whodunnit!
That month also included a trip to Milan with My Darling Clemmie, Hugh Whitemore’s play about Clementine Churchill, which played at a newly restored theatre called the Gerolamo – an absolute little gem just yards from the city’s Duomo.
Just a few weeks left of this year to record some more audiobooks and audio dramas for Games Workshop in Nottingham. It’s been a bumper 2019.
