Hopefully it will notbe the last time we perform here.Rosie: This is the perfect venue to hold a spoken word play; thelighting and acoustics help concentrate on the performanceand we can’t wait to return.So this isn’t the  rst time you have produced and directeda theatre production, but it is the  rst project you haveworked with your daughter, Rosie, on?Sue: Working together on this has been our  rst fullcollaborative project. It has had its challenges but we bothwork really well together, and have the advantage of being ableto be completely open and honest about creative opinions and‘tell it straight’, for want of a better phrase.                     6www.AroundSADDLEWORTH.co.uk
