The House with Two Doors

Written: 1982

Merlindene Theatre Co.

Once he’d read my Doctor of Honour, Robert decided he’d like to stage another Calderon play. We picked on this delightful comedy formed our own company, and staged it on the Edinburgh Fringe.

It was a terrible venue, St Thomas Aquinas school hall, and we did really badly. On our best night, we had an audience of 23.

But they laughed.

And hearing their laughter made me understand I was a playwright.
