Simon: This is exciting times! When I first read the script and heard the music it gave me that positive gut feeling that this piece of writing is not only original and innovative, but a sign of the times to a new musical era. It’s set in present day and appeals to a wide age group. The hard-hitting script tells a wonderful and emotionally poignant story, against a soundtrack of fantastic music. Yet again I find myself playing another complex character, Colonel Luke Gibson, and I’m looking forward to the challenge.
