The Audience’s Glitter Knickers

Wonderful opening night last night (2 March) – thanks hugely to all who came (feel free to come again, of course!). If you haven’t yet booked and want to come, I strongly recommend you click this “Book Now” link. But in the meantime, here’s a few choice quotes from last night’s fantastic audience:   “…the […]

GLITTER KNICKERS AHOY!

OK – IT’S SHOW TIME! The new show can be unveiled! It’s called Glitter Knickers, it’s on for just 4 nights in March, here in Bath and it’s a comedy about being in your early middle age. Tickets have just gone on sale and the theatre (the gorgeous Rondo, with comfy seats for just over […]

Glittery Glee

I’ve just showed this vid to an industry pro, and realised that it might never have made it  here – apologies! It’s the 90-sec promo for Glitter Knickers, designed to help it out of its R&D box and onto the next stages. Weirdly, both the actor Lucinda Holloway and I have been asked about the […]

Never quiet; always learning

Gosh – the sediment from Glitter Knickers has just about settled on the bottom of the jar.  The feedback just flowed in – thank you very much indeed, everyone – and in the next couple of weeks, it’s my job to package that up, with a whole load of metrics for The Next Stage. Watch this space. Meanwhile, […]
