In early 2014, theatre company New Perspectives commissioned me to adapt two of Daphne du Maurier’s short stories for the stage.
I was very excited to work with director Jack McNamara who’d already selected the stories for adaptation. The brief was to create one play from the two stories for just two actors.
The result was Watching the Living, which opened in September 2014 at the Guildhall in Derby. A spooky story of a husband and wife trapped in a loveless marriage, the play toured to theatres and village halls around England. Find out more here.
