Birmingham Stage Company


19 April 2007

I have always resisted the notion that I am sentimental but each time I see a drama school graduation showcase I feel the same sense of moment.

As a member of the audience you are watching a group of people on the brink of the rest of their lives. It’s normally during the closing number I find myself wondering what will happen to this group of people, this group of very different individuals. What has life got in store them; how many will achieve their burgeoning dreams, on and off the stage? It’s a moment of profound reflection and it never fails to move me.

What it is to be a human being on this planet.
