A nice surprise

Posted on Friday, December 11, 2015

The new run of The Firework Maker's Daughter has just opened at the Royal Opera House (Grab the last tickets before they go!). Sometimes all you need is a simple tweet to make all the hard work seem worth while. Especially if it's a tweet like this:

'The Firework-Maker's Daughter' at the Linbury Studio last night was one of the best treatments a story of mine has ever received. Loved it!

It was an honour and a surprise to meet the great man at the show, chat a little about his own initial school production of the story twenty plus years ago, the joy of fireworks and gamelan - and to raise a glass to Lila.
