My admiration for Emma Burnell knows no bounds. I followed her as a political journalist for years before becoming friends through MyTheatreMates. I've been amazed to watch her turn her hand to playwriting, producing, directing and now performing.
One of the few things I enjoy even more than theatre is talking politics. Chairing a post-show discussion about a brilliant new political play, written and directed by a Westminster insider, is my idea of bliss.
