In January 2011, as I sat down in my little one bedroom flat above an estate agent in the small village of Tisbury, I started to type away at my computer trying to write a script that I thought would play for a single night in a one act play festival. My only dream at that point was to try not to embarrass myself by writing something boring or that people couldn’t understand.
Today, over three years later, I am now looking back at what those few words have achieved.
Dear Mother has gone to tour different theatres and festivals in the South and South West. It has been widely accepted by audiences and has gained a following that have gone back to see the play time and time again. It continues to be requested at various events and theatres. It has also received excellent reviews from directors, authors, actors and also military personnel. Today it has been published as a play script and is available from any bookshop across the world and within literally hours of the launch date, it has now sold out on Amazon.
Dear Mother still continues to grow even now and as we enter the anniversary of the Great War, it is showing signs that it will pick up even more pace.
