John directed Jayne Lindill, Ian Rooney and me in Death and the Maiden at the Woodbin in 2001. He was a very warm, supportive and insightful director with an eye for every visible detail, an ear for the waves breaking on the beach below the Escobar home on the cliff and a joy to work with. He was not averse to shedding a tear in response to action on stage. I know that Death and the Maiden remains one of the most intense theatrical journeys his cast and crew have experienced. John was the victim of Covid-19 in England.
