I've literally been writing around the clock to get the first draft of the musical script finished, because not only do we have a genius director on board but we now have a top class producer too!
Enter the brilliantly switched on and canny Pippa Frith.
Benji’s worked with Pippa on a number of projects. He holds her in the highest regard and was keen to arrange a meeting between the three of us.
Pippa agreed to come and hear what all the fuss was about. Having received my script rudely late the night before, and left Birmingham for Manchester rudely early that morning, she read the script on the train journey over, and somehow managed to take both that, and everything else Benji and I threw at her that morning, completely in her stride.
Within no time at all she had her head around a strategy and timeframe, and in my sleep-deprived state of intensity, it was a pleasure to let that sense of relief that comes from knowing you are in good hands wash over me.
