Forward to the Right
Directed by Jo Iacovou

This is my first outing as a director, having appeared in many Maskers' productions over the years. I have enjoyed the process of working with the talented actors and crew and it has been a pleasure exploring the text together. The Maskers Studio Theatre is the ideal setting for this play and I hope you enjoy watching as much as I have directing.

Directed by Paul Green

This play has all the elements I love. Challenging for both actors and audience, dark humour, relevant contemporary subject and occasionally fun! This production has not been without its additional challenges. It is now currently on its third different cast line up in three weeks. The cast has had a total of three actual rehearsals, which explains why the performance is a rehearsed reading. We have worked extensively however since the dress rehearsal on Tuesday and I am very proud of how much progress we've actually made. Hopefully, we have done some justice to a great script from a brilliant contemporary writer.
