Sitting very comfortably in the director's chair - this being her third time - is Nathalie Peron. Deathtrap is quite an intimate play with only five characters.

Looking for William Morris and the “lost” regiment

Searching for ancestors can be fun but it sometimes feels like one is looking for a needle in a haystack. We recently received a request from a gentleman in Australia, Tim Fraser, who is searching for information about one of his ancestors, and asked if maybe one of our readers might be able to help him.
