"See The Glory"

I was immoderately pleased with the reading of my play “See The Glory” at London’s Young Vic last week. A highly sympathetic and experienced director (Topher Campbell) and a perfect cast (Joe Mydell and Lisa Davina Philip, with Jason Rowe on sax); Talawa’s reputation and marketing nous even managed to secure a full house in the small (60 seats) studio space. There were even a couple of familiar faces from Wales there, which was nice. Given that the piece starts out as a fairly cosy kind of story then takes a dark turn, I was relieved that it seemed to hang together; it got some laughs too, in the right places, which is always good. One only hopes that its journey will continue.
