Thank you and welcome. I am making a New Show to open in March 2018 that will include fragments of my story of the past few years and live performance, songs to be recorded  in January.

It's been a long longlonglonglonglonglong time.

Some thought I was at the point of no return.

And here we are. The return.

A bit battered but more than a bit better.

Thanks more than I can say for your contributions so far. Every little helps. 

This is not just a story of ill health. It's  a story of reclusedom and daddydom. A story of closeness and separation, a story of no walls and  thin lines between expert and knowing nothing, losing power but gaining sanity, showcasing years of collected writing, performance ideas, speaking in tongues, gypsy violins and  frothy melodies.  The show will be directed by the unique and excellent Jack Klaff. The funds, needed from December onwards, are to cover the fees and production costs incurred. Without your help this show cannot happen and we thank you for your support. 

I have recently been diagnosed with Spino Cerebellar Ataxia a degenerative neurological condition for which there is currently no cure. I want  this show to happen soon. For obvious reasons. 

10% of any funds after recoupment of production costs will go to movement-based Ataxia research.

well, my legs sort of work
but maybe not to be relied upon
maybe I am being cagey
but let me introduce you, from the comfort of my armchair, to …

I think I might rename this show JOLLY
It’s a show about trying to be happy when it’s just not happening for me .
I’m not being negative- my world is just not a bed of roses right now.
Fact. It’s no secret.
So don’t expect laughs and entertainment.
I’ll try but
but I make no Promises.
After all this is theatah
and it’s better if it’s real.

It’s time misery pays

All donations gratefully received
