Martin Dimery’s Highlights:
It’s always great to get a comedian who’s on the cusp of celebrity. Romesh Ranganathan packed the Merlin and has since become a household name.
Mozart’s “Cosi Fan Tutti” was brilliantly transformed into the intimate space of Cooper Hall.
Snowapple were invited back, this time to the grander setting of Rook Lane, where they played to a packed audience.
2015 was a special year for me, as our Nevertheless production was the site-specific drama Midsummer Dusk, which I wrote for performance in the Dissenters Cemetery on Vallis Road. I was much indebted to James Parsons, Trustees Secretary there, while researching the lives and times of the people who featured in this drama, and the cast – Annabelle Macfadyen, Oliver Wright, Jo Raphael, Eddie Young and Paul Ralston – were superb. Directed by Rosie Finnegan, the play sold out, including an additional third performance; it was really well reviewed – ‘the gem of the festival’ said one report.
