STILETTO BEACH DIARY

JUNE 2019

Imagine the lovely little heart attack I had when I was reading my National Theatre newsletter and saw Stiletto Beach at the bottom! Madness!

 

 

JUNE 2019

Exciting day holding auditions for Stiletto Beach with director Emma Baggott. SUCH AMAZING TALENT CAME THROUGH THE DOOR; I CANNOT WAIT TO FINALISE THE CAST AND SEE THEM IN ACTION.

I may cry. I will cry.

 

 

MARCH 2019: THE REHEARSED READING

Absolutely buzzing after the Stiletto Beach reading at multiple Offie nominated Queen’s Theatre Hornchurch. I am honoured to be commissioned to write the play by the wonderful Doug Rintoul & Mathew Russell, who want to champion positive notions of Essex.

The rehearsed reading had a cracking director in award-nominated Grace Duggan and a fantastic cast: Anne Odeke, David Hemsted, Rachel Keys, Saskia Marland, & Wendy Morgan.

Now back down the hole for a redraft. The play runs from 4th to 28th September.
