I don’t choose plays, plays choose me.
Got a cast
Got a rehearsal schedule
Almost beside myself with excitement.
That’s all I have to say for now.
The story of Ruth Ellis, the last woman to be hanged in Britain. A fascinating and moving story.
We’re currently performing it at the Sewell Barn Theatre, Constitution Hill, Norwich, Norfolk, UK.
I have the pleasure of playing Sylvia Shaw, doyenne of the fifties club scene, manageress of a the Court Club where Ruth once worked. From my research I can say that she was not a real person but rather a creation based on the type of women in those positions at the time.
She has been a joy to develop – to the extent that I don’t want to let her go when the show ends!

So, as I struggle and fail to get a blog out for November 1st (doesn’t bode well for the rest of the month), I find myself sitting in bed fighting off sleep.
I love this part of my day. I love my bed. I really love to sleep; t’s my escape, my healing, my world of dreams.
I know some folks are morning people, they rise and boy do they shine, grateful for that new day and all its potential.
Sometimes I’m one of them.
Most of the time I’m not.
