I love that I am a Scot, even if I have now lived south of the border longer than I have up north.
I “met” Sam Shepard in my recollection when I watched an afternoon viewing of the film The Right Stuff and he had me from the get-go. And was introduced to his writing later, mainly working with our director Simon Usher - who it turned out had worked with Joe Chaikin in his (Simonʼs) early days at the Riverside Studios in London.
To come home to Scotland and to be working in general on this wonderful trio of theatre pieces (plus the film, Savage/Love) is quite special. All these pieces of theatre make me feel inspired and energised, full of guts, challenge and beauty.
Happy to come home, hope you enjoy it too.
