Well Read!

According To Claudia poster

An early version of the poster
for According To Claudia

Slightly chaotic but very fruitful evening yesterday at the Readings for ‘According To Claudia’ which were held in the Dolman Studio. I was really pleased that so many people turned up given that many Playgoers are involved with the production (‘Love Story The Musical’) that is about to open and the one (‘Duets’) that is rehearsing for next month.

I spent the reading of Act Scene 1 frantically sorting out all the bits of paper for the other four readings. Everyone involved seemed to enjoy it, which was very rewarding and many people said they would be coming along to the auditions on Saturday 26th April. That’s something I’m looking forward to as well.

Now it’s back to working on my latest play – about the relationship between a quantity surveyor and a dead Beatle.

I'm also volunteer PR Officer with Newport Playgoers Society who own and run the city's 400-seater Dolman Theatre. I trained at the London Film School where I specialised in script-writing, directing and animation, and had three films screened at the National Film Theatre. After teaching film-making, photography and art, I moved into the world of advertising and PR and was a professional writer. My play 'According to Claudia' was selected by Newport Playgoers Society to launch their 92nd season. It won the Award for Theatre Show of the Year 2014 presented by lifestyle and entertainment magazine Voice. It has since been published by Silvermoon Publications and is available from Amazon. Other plays I have had published include 'Poor Yorick', 'Bunkered' and 'Caddying for Godot'. Previously my one act play 'Poor Yorick' was a winning entry in a competition run as part of the Royal Shakespeare Company’s Open Stages project and was performed at both the 400-seat Dolman Theatre and Blackwood Little Theatre. Another play, 'Bunkered', was one of the winning entries in a competition judged by Welsh playwright Frank Vickery.
