Anyone Who Had A Heart

Sometimes a project comes along that is so mind-bendingly simple in its premise you wonder why no one thought of it before.

PLAYlist is one such concept. A night of plays inspired by music. Sounds straightforward enough. But then – the plays must be no longer than the piece of music that inspired them! Whaaaat?!!?

Sometimes there is a theme imposed. Sometimes not – in which case it’s a PLAYlist: Shuffle.

My play Heart Shaped Hole has been selected to be part of the next Shuffle line-up.

It was inspired by Anyone Who Had A Heart by Cilla Black. (A song so damn catchy it stays with you forever – finally an explanation to friends and family as to why I’ve been humming it for the past month or so!)

Directed by Steve Harper, it’s on at Theatre503 in Battersea, London on Saturday 8 May @ 7.45pm. Click [here] for ticket details. 

It’s all very, very exciting.

All together now …

“Anyone who ever dreamed could look at me, and know I dream of youuuu. Knowing I love you. So! …”
