  • David Warner reads The Just So Stories

    So as you may recall, some time ago I produced a show called The Just So Stories, based on the classic book by Rudyard Kipling. The Just So Stories was performed at the King’s Head Theatre, the Pleasance Theatre in both London and Edinburgh, and at the Trestle Theatre in St. Albans. It got some […]

  • A Christmas that’s Just So

    And the last theatrical Christmas announcement this year (unless someone is putting on a production of mine in secret somewhere and hasn’t told me about it) is that Red Table’s production of The Just So Stories, as seen at this year’s Edinburgh Festival, is going to be touring to St Albans this Christmas. Here are […]

  • Curtain Up

    Due to the magic of computers, this post will be published at exactly the same time as the audience are seated and the lights come up for The Just So Stories in Edinburgh. The show runs twice a day from today until the 29th August, with two days off on the 10th and 22nd. We’ve […]

  • The Just So Stories at the Edinburgh Festival

    It’s my absolute pleasure to be able to tell you two things. Firstly, that Red Table made a profit on our recent production of The Just So Stories at the Pleasance Theatre this Easter. A Fringe Theatre show? Not losing money? Inconceivable! As it turns out, when you’re involving actors and crew using the Open […]

  • Open Book Theatre

    My little theatre company made the front page of The Stage this week. For those of you too far from a newsagent to pick up a copy for yourself, or who live in the future where paper is considered a barbaric relic of our savage past, you can also read the article online. As you’ll […]

  • Giant Happy Crab Is Happy

    Some fantastic news: The Just So Stories – which I produced at The King’s Head Theatre over Christmas – is transferring to the Pleasance Theatre for a three-week run over Easter. The show’s going to be better than ever, with a bigger and more comfortable snuggle pit for the children and a brand-new set from […]

  • Review: The Just So Stories

    Hope you had a lovely Christmas Day. Mine was full of Christmas Pudding and Turkey and Family and Wine, and was generally all-round lovely. I just discovered a review of The Just So Stories in the Hampstead and Highgate Express. You can read it via the Internets using The Ham and High e-edition. It’s in […]

  • Can’t stop.

    Updates have been a bit slim recently due to work on The Just So Stories. Who know that producering was such bloody hard work? I’m having an assistant next time. Definitely. Anyway, I’ve just found out that there are a whole bunch of reviews for my adaptation of A Christmas Carol up at the Giant […]

  • Three (that’s the magic number)

    My. I have been busy. This Christmas, I have no less than three plays on in London. I’m producing The Just So Stories at The King’s Head Theatre. I wrote the adaptation of A Christmas Carol at the Lion & Unicorn. And on top of that, my new play The Strange Mésalliance of Arthur Munby […]

  • The Just So Stories

    That’s Pau Amma, The Crab That Played With The Sea, as drawn for us by Hannah Broadway. If you look closely, you can see that he is taller than the smoke of three volcanoes! Tickets are now on sale for The Just So Stories at the King’s Head Theatre from December 15 2010 through to […]
