Happy March ladies and gents!! Well where do we start? Let’s get through the
changes within the Company first.
Martin Knowles has decided that film making is for him, so from the beginning of
this year he stepped down from acting roles with Paper Zoo and is now throwing
his efforts into his new film company.
Ben Eagle has also decided on a change of direction and can be currently found
visiting one of many drama schools and “Old Vic’s” around the country,
auditioning for entrance to one of them.
Needless to say these two chaps are co founders of Paper Zoo Theatre
Company and may well return at some point in the future should they wish to do
so. In the meantime we wish them well in their respective career paths and hope
to see them both soon.
And with regards to Paper Zoo it is onwards and upwards!
As you will have read, we are currently in rehearsal for Dennis Potter’s play, ‘Blue
Remembered Hills’. Initially I had misgivings about the play but after just a couple
of meetings the challenge it poses is something to relish. It is a wonderful story
full of childhood friendships and allegiances that turn on a knife edge. The play is
haunting and thought provoking in equal measure. The characters are children
(played by children) during the 2nd World War down in the West Country,
accents and all!! You can see the challenges already.
The tour dates will begin back end of June, actual dates to follow very shortly. We
hope as many as you as possible, can see the play in the various venues we’ve
got lined up.
Paper Zoo Theatre Company continues to go from strength to strength it seems
with great encouragement and support from many followers of our work all
chomping on the bit to see the next project.
So, on behalf of myself and the whole of the company, thank you for your
It is greatly appreciated.
Have a very happy Easter.
