The Goodbyes…

And I have realised that every good bye is tough… When I did plays – as much as I loved opening night and all the grandeur and excitement; it was always bitter-sweet. There’d be no more rehearsals, no more swapping stories and gossip, no more long coffee breaks and bloopers. The family that we createdContinue reading “The Goodbyes…”

The Imperfect Fit

I was never part of any clique (group)- popular or unpopular – I just didn’t belong. I’ve never been the perfect fit anywhere I think. I’ve always been the one who is a bit too loud, a bit too ambitious, a bit ott romantic. I produced theatre for 18 years but was never arty enough.Continue reading “The Imperfect Fit”

Taking back my strength

It’s play time again for me with The Jury launching this Friday and whereas the word ‘play’ is rather misleading – this is probably the time of maximum stress for me, least fun and no time! Theatre is however an absolute addiction for me… else there would be no possible reason for me to almost cause ulcersContinue reading “Taking back my strength”

I’m not a survivor.

I’m Divya and I’m NOT an Alcoholic

Play On ( dedicated to all those I’ve ever worked with on stage and all those who love theatre!)

  I have been doing professional theatre ever since I was 14 years old. Theatre has given me a home, given me a voice, given me confidence and even found me a husband! ‘Sound of Music,’ taught me to sing and I have been singing ever since. My taste in music is questionable…but nonetheless I’llContinue reading “Play On ( dedicated to all those I’ve ever worked with on stage and all those who love theatre!)”
