Death Defying Acts (2013)
To present works by these three great writersin one evening and with such a talented cast and crew gives me nothing but pleasure. The first show I directed at SLT was Woody Allen's Play It Again Sam in 1997 and my third was Mamet's Glengarry Glen Ross, so I feel that I am coming full circle and returning to two of the authors whose work made me want to direct theatre in the first place (and am happy to welcome Elaine May into the fold).

Well done to Anton and all his cast, with my particular Oscar going to Helen, for wonderful performances in two contrasting roles. Try your hardest to get a ticket for tonight if you can.
