It’s here! The first night was totally sold out so I’m thrilled that our hard work is paying off. As an emerging writer it’s tricky getting your name out there so I’ve been busy drumming up some publicity and it’s been fun.
I was really excited to be a guest of Yasmeen Khan’s show on Talk Radio which goes out nationally. Yasmeen is great fun and is a very accomplished playwright so it was an honour chatting with her. The Talk Radio staff looked after me really well and I enjoyed being in their busy studio (even though I failed to recognise George Galloway who was sipping coffee and preparing for his show in the kitchen!) You can listen here.
Another radio interview, this time with Ian Barclay from Wandsworth Radio. Ian kindy visited us in rehearsals at the studio and recorded a snippet of the play. James Haddrell chats about the studio and how he programmes work at Greenwich Theatre and I talk about our connection to Missing People charity. Listen here
Helen McWilliams from Break A Leg Review interviewed for her magazine and you can read that here.
We were picked out as one of Three To See here
West End Wilma talks about Greenwich Theatre’s innovative new progamme here
and James talks to Broadway World about GAADS here.
James has also written a great piece on the power of theatre for Huffington Post here.
Phew! Been a busy few weeks and we’ve only just got started. Come and see us, we’re on until the 29th January and if you’re on Twitter, tweet me @sian_rowland using #GazingStarPlay
