I’m very saddened to hear of the death of playwright, Louise Page.
I was lucky enough to work with her as composer on her adaptation of ROGUE HERRIES – staged by Theatre by the Lake in 2013.

I also spent some time working with Louise on ideas for two pieces for children – based on the works of Beatrix Potter, and the Uncle Remus stories.
Louise had a fierce intellect, and a real eye for detail.
Sending much love to Louise’s family, friends and colleagues.
