Mid-term work prospects.

A busy time, I'm glad to say, on the future job front. A rather big, posh comedy play currently running in the West End has come into the frame. It would knock everything else I'd planned after Christmas on the head, but it is a massive tax bill paying remedy. Under big pressure from certain quarters to count my lucky stars etc. In tough times I am aware that this is a luxury in my game, but am not at all sure my heart would be in it.

Writing commitments coming along at the gallop. New half hour comedy pilot undergoing key-hole surgery. Enjoying it greatly.

Detective pilot getting a little more gruesome with each script conference. Fighting the demand for more blood.

Sondheim Concert for Opera Seven - for whom I am directing Sweeney Todd next year - in December. Am dusting my larynx off and calling in favours from much more talented singers than myself.

Finish Rock and Chips in a couple of weeks. it's been great fun revisiting the pervy Ernie Raynor.

Christmas just around the corner. A plethora of Panto's to visit, but not to be in - thank the Lord!
