I’m sick of talking. Talking’s for people with nothing to say.

As soon as I read one of the speeches from a draft of a new play called Thin Toes, by a young writer Laura Stevens in 2006, it made me want to become a director.

Thin Toes followed three characters: Meg, a once-famous artist; Andrea, her teenage daughter and Lucy, Andrea’s new best friend. Exploring art, anorexia and exhibitionism, the play was a bold look at three very different women and signalled the arrival of a talented, new writer in Laura Stevens.

I also had the good fortune to find three incredible actresses to inhabit the roles – Helen Millar, Elizabeth Bichard and Camilla Simson and the World Premiere production was presented at the Pleasance, London in March 2008.
