My play “The Rise and Fall of Magbeth” was performed at the Minack Theatre last week to large and it seems very happy audiences. It was dogged with bad luck before the show – the lead actress dropped out with a week to go and one of the crucial members of the cast had a heart attack at the dress rehearsal!

Despite all that stress the cast made a wonderful job of it. Tamsyn Kelly took over as Magbeth and did far more than fill in the role – she was absolutely brilliant and knocked the socks off the cast as well as the audience. What talent – it’s not easy for an audience to do a standing ovation at the Minack but that’s what she got on the last night, and well deserved. Jess Layton joined the company with four days to go, taking over Tamsyn’s part, and was flawless too. When I was forced to go on stage as well Tim Williams took over the stage management as well as his own part and made sure everything went smoothly. All my family took part too in different ways and even the weather joined in with a moonlit Minack at its most beautiful.

I’m thrilled and humbled with everyone’s hard work and dedication – thank you all so much.
