What I do...
« on: August 28, 2019, 02:40:18 AM »
I've spent a lot of time talking to people in Agios Stefanos about being a playwright and screenwriter, and there's always the question "What have you written?"

Apart from the grime of The Bill and Eastenders, there is one thing I wrote set in another beautiful, but very different, island from Corfu - Dominica in the Caribbean. Originally from Trinidad, the director Horace Ove was the first black director to work in UK film and television. Alas, Horace now has advanced Alzheimers. The producer, Malcolm Craddock, died last year. At the age of nearly 77 I don't have a lot of time left, and I hope this will be a suitable memorial to all three of us! Originally commissioned and shown by Channel 4, and recently screened at the BFI, "The Orchid House" has now been released on All Four. If you have four hours to spare, the link is here:
