Hello – I’m Gill! It’s always nice to put a face to a voice – and for those of you who listen to the newsletter on CD, it’s high time I introduced myself.
I’m Gill Medway, a local actor and writer – and it’s my great privilege to record your monthly newsletter.
I’ve been a primary school teacher, a magazine editor and – believe it or not – a puppeteer in Saudi Arabia. My glove puppet theatre, Magic Forest, featured the adventures of Horace the Hedgehog and was a real hit with the under-fives – both for Saudi children and British expats.
I’m now the resident writer with a local theatre company, Hurly-burly Theatre. We’ve been performing regularly at the Ardington Hotel in Worthing – and I’m lucky to be writing for a great bunch of actors.
Our work there has been seriously curtailed, due to you-know-what but with the easing of restrictions, we’re now back on track and planning our next performance. As we return slowly to normal, there’s plenty going on at Sight Support, too. I look forward to telling you all about it very soon…
