I seem to be in a dramatic mood at present. Always delighted to publicise our members' theatrical endeavours. What a huge joy to hear of Doreen Friend's play to be put on at London's Cockpit Theatre on 14th and 15th May 2010. NORMAL SHOES is her brand new play. Doreen (aka Della) has written numerous scripts over the years and has enjoyed receiving many accolades for her work. Her new play will be directed by another of our supersonic members, Martin Cort. Martin is a great producer with a distinguished provenance in the theatre.

The storyline is set in a private nursing home, and the play examines the life of Kenny Tucker, a clown nursing a secret which threatens to destroy him...

Funnily enough, I am in correspondence with a couple of clowns and a few nursing homes, so the topic is a little near to home for me, but it sounds a fascinating storyline. More details can be found at the Cockpit 020 7258 2925 or from the website where tickets can be booked.
