Default Theatre Production about HD

Dear all

I have been contacted by Phil Ormrod, a theatre director who is producing a play about HD; its working title is Inheritance, and it will run for three weeks from 26th July 2009, at the Tristan Bates Theatre in Covent Garden.

Phil is eager to speak to a number of people with HD in their lives, he has met a couple of people through the London support group and also visited a specialist care home, he is now looking for more people who are happy to share their experiences.

If you would be happy to speak to Phil please email me (ruth_sands@hda.org.uk) with contact details (email or phone number) and I will pass these on for Phil to make contact.

Many thanks

Ruth

Hi Ruth

Sounds intersting . Do you know why he has chosen the subject of HD is it from personal experience of friends or family?

Hmm. If it's to ensure that HD gets accurately represented and that's it's a reputable aim, then I'm interested - I've emailed you

Presumably it's this Phil Ormrod ? http://www.uk.stagejobspro.com/view.php?uid=139995

I'd also be interested in hearing why it's been chosen as a subject as well though

I'm not sure why he chose HD as his topic, I have asked him and will let you know....

Thanks for the email South Coaster.

Hi South Coaster - Phil has confirmed that this is him (although a little out of date), I didn't manage to find out why he chose HD (I think I've been sending him too many emails) - but he will be in touch with those who have volunteered to share their experiences, so hopefully someone can bring this up with him and let us know?
