Six months on and what’s happened to that VERY successful musical, Silly Old Buggers?

Well, there’s still a lot of interest in it out in the wide world but nothing happens in a hurry, it seems, and currently I’m “in discussions” with two production companies and two agents about the future of the show.

I'm somewhat encouraged by the fact that a new Australian play, which won the $10,000 Patrick White Prize in 2007, has only JUST found a producer and is opening at fortyfivedownstairs in August this year! So if it can take a prize winning play three years to get a producer and we only began in 2009, I guess I can wait a bit longer.

In the meantime, I’ve been enjoying the beautiful summer and autumn weather out in the garden. And now that the winter is upon us, I’m happily sitting inside, watching the garden grow in the beautiful rain and spending time reading and relaxing.

2009 was a big and very busy year and I’m only now beginning to feel a bit more like getting into the writing game again. Watch this space for further developments!
