Thank You, 2011: And everyone who contributed along the way


Rehearsing You Will Be Kissed By Princess Leia for The Wooden Leg
at The Owl & The Pussycat


2011 was an amazing year for me and my theatre-making endeavours.

Thank you to everyone who worked so hard to put on The Wooden Leg’s first season of shows at The Owl & The Pussycat in September.

Thank you to everyone involved in Richard Di Gregorio: On Time – my first foray into the Melbourne Fringe Festival.

Thank you to Short & Sweet for continuing to showcase new works from emerging artists – and to Nicole Bilson for bringing Poems a Dead Boy Wrote to life.

Onward and upward in 2012.

Thanks to the creative team behind Painting with Words and Fire, which will premiere in February 2012.

Thanks to David Attrill and Sarah Connor, who are working hard on Like a House on Fire, for its late January premiere at Short & Sweet Sydney.

And more thanks to all involved with Richard Di Gregorio: On Time before we head off to Adelaide for Fringe in late February.

I’m already hard at work on shows that will hopefully see the light of day in late 2012: a full-lenth play or two and a short cabaret piece.

Thank you to all the amazing creative people I met this year, whose friendship and work inspire me. I hope to work with more and more of you!

And, finally, thank you to friends, family and theatre-going audiences who supported my work all year.  In the end, the work is for the audience – and I am so thrilled you seemed to enjoy so much of it.

See you all in 2012. Have a great New Year celebration!
