Around the World in 80 Days

Swansea Little Theatre

Tuesday 27th January 2009
Director's Notes When first picking up this script, which was originally performed by 5 actors, I couldn't resist the challenge of such a fast moving and exciting adventure story which follows Phileas Fogg around the world. This adventurous story has captured readers since it was first written in 1873. Although nowadays we could travel around the world far quicker than 80 days, what Phileas Fogg encounters on his travels is as relevant now as it would have been the...

Not Now, Darling!

Swansea Little Theatre

Tuesday 17th August 2004
 Directors Notes I first appeared in "Not Now Darling" as a member of the Grand Theatre Repertory Company in in the early 1970's. I remember it as being one of the cleverest scripts and one of the funniest play I have ever done. The director, John Chilvers, was a master of farce from whom I learnt so much about the precision, and discipline that this type of humour requires. The play is a classic of the genre with scantily clad females running in ...

Swansea Little Theatre

Tuesday 22nd July 2003
 Director's Notes Way back in the early 1970's a Tv show began which went from humble beginings to define a whole decade.

I have always been an avid fan, mainly because I grew up with it and along with the other Brittish Comedy institutions (Steptoe &a...
