The Close to Home Show
Composed by Stuart Stevens
An oratorio based on the short story entitled “All About And To A Female Artist” written by Shelagh Delaney. She assembled this prose piece from the mountains of negative, cynical, begging, sometimes threatening, often funny letters and harsh reviews (mostly critical of her gender) that she was bombarded with at just 19 years old following the enormous success of her debut play “A Taste Of Honey”.
Performed by actors, singers and musicians.
Next performance March 6th, 2020. For tickets please visit www.thisisthumb.co.uk.

Permission to Cry by David Compton
David Campton’s beautifully structured, heart-rending play about Julia Gibbon, an up-and-coming junior minister whose life is thrown into turmoil by conflict between private and public morality. Told in a series of dreamlike flashbacks, this is a compassionate, insightful play about love and politics in our hypocritical age. Performed at The Etcetera Theatre as part of the Camden Fringe Festival
A series of short videos, made by myself and the fabulous Paul Dunn. They’re a CSI: Miami spoof, an homage of a beloved show.
