October 2019 New play Moment of Grace (full version) showcased at Bloomsbury festival -sold out performances! Film trailer here Audience feed-back :

Just been to see a very moving play about events around Diana’s 1987 visit to an AIDS ward. Such an important moment to reflect on. Congratulations to the author on a well-paced and powerful play.

I thought 'Moment of Grace' was beautifully constructed and sensitively played. Congratulations! Do hope some theatre/producers show some interest.

Well researched, will written, well performed and very moving and enlightening. A tour de force. Well done.

Congratulations. What an amazing evening. It was a privilege to be there - you should be very proud.

It was mind-blowing and humbling; the time has come for a specifically British take on those years.

Came to see 'Moment of Grace' last night and wanted to thank you all for this piece of theatre. So important that the early years of HIV/AIDS are not forgotten. Superb performances from everyone; really emotional night.

A thought provoking inspirational story. Thanks and well done!
