Gordon Brown

24 January 2007

With four shows on at the moment, we have never been more busy. But I just found time this morning to send Gordon Brown a letter!

Dear Mr Brown

I am just about to send H M Customs and Revenue a cheque for £65,923 for VAT this quarter. I started my theatre company fifteen years ago from scratch with no public funding support whatsoever. For some years now we have been sending you very large VAT cheques each quarter for money which has been generated out of nowhere, whether or not we make a profit ourselves. It would be nice if once in a while we got a thank-you!

With all best wishes
