I’m so proud of my friend Mark Jagasia, how could I resist pulling together one of my #PressPass round-ups for his debut play? Clarion premiered to rave reviews (really, see below) last week at the Arcola Theatre and is already tipped for a transfer.
I think I may have also been the one who introduced him to the actress Lucy Briers, who he wanted to interview after she played a hard-bitten female journalist in a one-woman play at Trafalgar Studios. (If either of them are reading, please remind me of the name and author of that play… I remember liking it very much – but it was at least five years ago. Something by Sam Adamson maybe??? I’ll come back on that one.)
Thanks for the thanks, Mark. Did I mention how proud I am of you? Lots of love to you and Orla. See you at a Sunday Breakfast Club soon, I hope.
