Who do you think you are? This drawing is made up of twelve items in different categories; furniture, food, drink, music, clothes, place, books, transport and pastimes that I like. The figure is of Roxanne a mannequin who is my flatmate. My favourite piece of furniture is an old brass bedstead which is very comfortable. Live theatre is also a passion including the brilliant live broadcasts that come to the cinema
This cartoon was made in response to the town council deciding, without consultation, to remove the Rotunda which is the main source of advertising for the Marine Theatre.

'Performance'. A masterclass given by Oliver Ford Davies, a patron of the Marine Theatre. He was expertly demonstrating how to a line of Shakespeare could be spoken in five or more different ways. Absolutely riveting to witness such expertise.
Clemmie Reynolds, the Artistic Director, making notes during The Lyme Tempest to feedback to the actors. A play relating to Lyme's connection with Shakespeare's Tempest was written for the occasion by Andrew Rattenbury also a patron of the theatre who writes for television. Prospero is thought to be inspired by Admiral Somers who came from Lyme and sailed to and discovered Bermuda. He was shipwrecked and his body returned in a barrel of rum. They interwove the two stories and had a cast of fifty players from the community. A wonderful achievement and outdoors too. The weather was kind and no storms!
