The Plan for 2008
19 May 2008
I've always fancied my chances on The Apprentice, but I am beginning to wonder! This year was supposed to be 'the quiet year' - a chance to re-group after a very busy 2007, which included PROOF in the West End and OTHELLO in Birmingham/London.
So I have been somewhat shocked to work out that this year we are staging NINE productions, making it in fact the busiest year in our history. We are working on two major productions for adults in 2009 but this year it's all for children and their families:
DANNY THE CHAMPION OF THE WORLD
HORRIBLE HISTORIES - TUDORS AND VICTORIANS
WHY THE WHALES CAME
HORRIBLE HISTORIES NOTTINGHAM
THE JUNGLE BOOK
GEORGE'S MARVELLOUS MEDICINE
It means we're working with some wonderful writers: Roald Dahl, David Wood, Terry Deary, Robert Louis Stevenson, Stuart Paterson, David Almond, David McKee, Phil Clark, Michael Morpurgo and Rudyard Kipling. Even more exciting that seven of these ten writers are alive and well!
I suppose we should be delighted about all this, but given the original plan, I don't think Sir Alan would be impressed!
