Oh my Lord, we’re nearly into MARCH! I’ve had a couple of months out in order to concentrate on The Sunday Drama College (SDC) and writing. Both of which are coming along brilliantly.

January saw the first ever production of the SDC called I GOT HERE FIRST directed by the wonderful Nigel Fairs. I was so proud of them, they really couldn’t have had more commitment and energy. Nigel allowed their individual talents to shine through. Bloody marvelous.

I’ve been editing ROMEO AND JULIET for an open air production this summer with them, which will be an R & J like you have never seen. Adam Rood is on board to be the Musical Director. All very exciting.

The series that Lou’s Crew has been writing has now been pitched. Those of you that love me cross everything, pray to your deity, hold your breath… Ten of us have argued, laughed and fought over Episode 1, and six of us over Episode 2. My agent loves it, he’s taken it to the producer of his choice, and now we WAIT. ‘Twas ever thus.

Needs must with the bank balance so I am about to go out on the road again with a moving and funny play called WOMEN ON THE VERGE OF HRT. You’ll find the tour dates and other members of the cast at the end of this blog.

Family is just dandy. Many changes abound. More of that next time. If you can, come and see the show. Also keep an eye out for the DOCTOR WHO DVDs, now with additional interviews… recorded them last week.

I may see some of you in Barking next Saturday, where I shall be interviewing Mary Tamm. I look forward to that. Very belated but have a brilliant 2009 and I’ll blog again when on the road.

Love Louise x
