And late..! Apologies. A myriad of reasons but I won’t bore you with them. Just ask you to excuse me.
THE DREAM went wonderfully… eventually – I threw a wobbly on the Monday of the final week and they jumped to in the most unexpected and brilliant way, by Sunday I was enormously proud. Not least of all with the asses head made by Dominic Atkinson. Next year… The Scottish Piece… Started work on it already.
LOVE’S THE THING was also a triumph – what fun! Upstairs at The Lamb in Eastbourne was celebrating its first year as a fringe venue and the room was packed, and rocked with laughter and, on occasion, a lump in the collective throat. I can’t speak for myself, but the three thespians, I was honoured to share the stage with, were fantastic.
I finished a short story this week, very Mills and Boon, but nevertheless a week before my deadline! It is to go towards a brain tumour charity book that Fantom Films are publishing. Find out more at www.fantomfilms.co.uk
My next deadline for them is to produce at least one chapter of the autobiography by the end of September. Aaaaaaaaaaaaaagh!
In the middle of September I start work with Ray Cooney on STOP DREAMIN’. I’m looking forward to this more than any job in a long time, but am also… what?… scared is too strong a word, but I’m out of my comfort zone that’s for sure.
Between now and then I have 6 (yes six!) stories to do for BIG FINISH (www.bigfinish.com) and have now set up a shop on this website so that the body of work I have done through them can be sold through this site (signed), you can also purchase signed copies of any of the television shows I have been in on DVD. I hope this is a useful addition for those of you who can’t make it to a convention or personal appearance. Hurrah!
Think that’s it for now, thank you for checking in. Enjoy the rest of the summer and I’ll write again in September.
PS I shall be touring my one woman show PULLING FACES this coming December/January, watch this space and also www.tlcproductions.co.uk which contains news of our Murder Mysteries and all the other productions tlc have taken on board.
