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.

for submissions is the 31st March 2020. The submission form can be

downloaded from at Rep. If you have any questions about what

we seek, the time frame or any other issue, please email me, Bryan Eaton at
