In 2006, I was approached by Wonderland Theatre to re-direct their revival of John Burrows’ 1987 play It’s A Girl! Having had a successful run of the play at that year’s Edinburgh Festival, the company had been invited to take the production to Romania the following year, to participate in a festival of international theatre in Bucharest and they want to further develop the piece.
Working with the brilliant cast of actors: Sarah Armstrong, Margaret-Ann Bain, Marie Blount, Joanna Doyle, and Avril Poole, on a new version of the production for the festival, was a great first step for me as a theatre director.
This new version of It’s A Girl! that we presented as part of the Bucharest Festival of International Theatre in May 2007 was an incredible experience of sharing a piece of work as part of an artistic and cultural exchange.
