Meet Me In Tring?

Hello folks.

Apologies for the lengthy absence; I’ve been busy with one thing and another – including the world première of my script,  An Unexpected Hero.  It debuted in grand style at St John’s, the church across the road from my house.  We had an audience of at least twenty children each day!  Academy Award, I’m on your trail…  

In all seriousness, it was just a little something I knocked up for our church holiday club, but I had fun writing it and it kept me busy.

Alex has been busy, too.  He is currently appearing as Caliban in The Tempest at Pendley Shakespeare Festival in Tring.  Last week he appeared as a Fairy and Wedding Singer in A Midsummer Night’s Dream.

The festival has been going for 67 years.  You can read all about it here.  They stage two plays in three weeks, using a mix of amateurs and professionals for cast and crew.  It’s very popular.

I’m going to see it on Sunday.  The Hub wanted to go with me but he’s not well enough, which leaves us with a spare ticket.  If you live in that general area and can get yourself to Tring for the Sunday Matinée, you’re welcome to use it. Email me at if you’re interested.

I’d say first come, first served but I can’t imagine I’ll have many takers, seeing as how most of you live abroad.  But you never know.

And if you can’t make it on Sunday but you live nearby, the show runs until Sunday, so pop on down to see some fine open air theatre.

    I’ll be looking out for you at the Oscars, Tilly! Hope you get someone to use your spare ticket.

    You have been away for awhile! You have a talented son, and you have your own talents as well. I’m sure your script was very well received! I’m sorry to hear that the Hub isn’t well enough to go with you to see the play and I hope that he’ll be doing better soon. It’s good to have an update on you and your family!

    Miss you tons when you must be away! (Or is that “tonnes”?) Haha.
    I thought about hopping over to grab that ticket, but watched Taylor and Burton in the “Shrew” instead. :-\

    Is Alex an amateur or a professional?

    Tilly the playwright – I like the sound of that!


I welcome your comments but be warned: I'm menopausal and as likely to snarl as smile. Wine or Maltesers are an acceptable bribe; or a compliment about my youthful looks and cheery disposition will do in a pinch.
