'elephant and castle' rehearsals begin
So, Lillian Henley and I start making a brand new Gig Theatre show called Elephant and Castle from 9th January. We show our first preview on 10th March at Omnibus, Clapham. The terrifically talented David Parkin is Dramaturg. The brilliant Edward Tuckwell is poster designer and the always fantastic Andy Purves is lighting designer. This is a show that has been three years in the making. Using sleep talking recordings from my own mouth, this show will be a story about a husband and wife relationship and the stupid things we say.
Bookish finishes tour
Laura Mugridge and I finished our Bookish Autumn 2016 tour . It went really well and we have seen some beautiful parts of the country and met some brilliant people. My favourite place to visit was Leeds. I like Leeds. It is fun with lots happening and everyone is friendly. Thanks Leeds.
There are plans to continue the show to literary festivals and add a new show to the mix. Please click on the link for more details about Bookish.
Here is a song I made in August last year. It was commissioned by Penlee Art Gallery in response to a painting of my choice. I chose this one above.
howl at the moon tour has landed safely
So, I am back on earth after travelling around the moon a lot. What do I do now?
What can you do after doing such a momentous thing? I have read the book 'No More Worlds To Conquer' by Chris Wright to help me through the transition.
Have a read yourself. It is very good.
In the meantime, I will read the nice things people have said about the show. See you soon.

'lifeboat' - new song released inspired by research
On 13th February 2015, for 6 hours, I sat in a small white tent in a white gallery space at Oxford House, Bethnal Green with some musical instruments inside and pretended I was in a space capsule for research for my new show Howl at the Moon. I ate, slept, urinated and made music. Not in that order. This is one of the tracks I came up with. It is in the show and is called Lifeboat.
'still score' soundtrack available on itunes
This is is an album of a live recording taken from the performance at Oxford house, Bethnal Green on 19th September 2014.
'janvier' video online
Filmed at various places including Burgess Park and the Member's Bar at BFI Southbank, this is a song about Paris, love and loss.
