Thought for the Day | OUT OF THE BOX
Farnham resident Abigail McKern is a hands-on member of the Farnham Theatre Association – she has just been elected to its Board of Directors – and contacted me recently to say she had been very encouraged by the first major keynote speech given on 24 June, 2008, by Shadow Secretary of State for Culture, Media & Sport, Jeremy Hunt MP, after his twelve months in the job.

Christmas Theatre Review | NICHOLAS NICKLEBY | CFT @ Gielgud Theatre [transfer]
After five and a half hours of Nicholas Nickleby, I sucked in the cold neon London air outside the Gielgud and decided I needed a drink. Little did I know I was soon to stumble upon Dickensian London, alive and well and stagnated as ever, in The French House, Dean Street. Belinda Williams [more]

Feature | THE BATTLE FOR THE REDGRAVE
The Redgrave Theatre in Farnham was a successful Rep for many years until bad management and an inappropriate choice of productions saw the theatre grinding to a halt. “Now it’s been boarded up since 1999,” says actor Abigail McKern, local to the area and who, along with fellow campaigners for the Farnham Theatre Association, formed in 2005, is fighting developers to prevent demolition.

Interview | LYNNE PEARSON | The Rise and Fall of Little Voice
The last time I saw Lynne Pearson it was November 2004 and we were at The Actors' Church in Covent Garden for the funeral of a fellow student from Webber Douglas where we had all trained in the 1970s. Mark Drewry had been in a coma for more than two years following a tragic road accident. It was a sad occasion but uplifting in many ways. Some of us had not seen each other for three decades and it brought us together in a way that comforted and reinforced the value of our shared history. Sarah Vernon [more]

Interview | ABIGAIL McKERN | For Services Rendered
Abigail McKern is sitting in a Farnham car park with hail pinging all around. Despite the circumstances, she is on her mobile for a good hour talking to me about working on For Services Rendered with Ed Hall, our shared years training at Webber Douglas in the 1970s and just how much we enjoy the freedom and peace of our grumpy middle age! Sarah Vernon [more]

Theatre Review | FOR SERVICES RENDERED | Watermill Theatre, Newbury
The Watermill, West Berkshire Playhouse, confirms its status as a leading light in theatrical experimentation with this fine production of a particularly obscure and rarely-staged drama. W Somerset Maugham's For Services Rendered, first performed in 1932 and at the time perhaps Maugham's least successful play, seems particularly suited to the rustic wonder of this rural gem of a venue. Kevin Quarmby [more]
