“Annie Stainer worked with me on ‘The Fall of the House of Usher’, which toured Australia, and for me this was one of the most rewarding experiences. Annie is a rare kind of person in the arts and performance, since she brings to her creations a wide range of influences and insights and is determined, in my opinion, to create a theatre that goes beyond the commonplace and takes us into far deeper areas. Therefore, the theatre becomes something that gives us hope, life and inspiration.”
