Panel Discussion: Whatever Happened to Cunning Stunts?
A lively discussion of the radical Feminist Theatre Companies of the 70's and 80's. The focus was on Monstrous Regiment, Beryl and the Perils, Women's Theatre Group and Bloomers. This picture shows the panel applauding several original members of Cunning Stunts who attended the event. We were delighted they could be with us.

A...My Name is Alice
Conceived by Joan Micklin Silver and Julianne Boyd.
Cabaret Performance by arrangement with Samuel French Ltd.
An exuberant end to a great event: the satirical musical comedy A...My Name is Alice conceived by Joan Micklin Silver and Julianne Boyd. Directed by Jacqui Somerville and choreographed by Cressida Carre, MD Chris Nolan led the cast of Mountview graduates in a 40 minute cabaret performance. It was great to see some contemporary female talent: Kylie Bates, Ebony Buckle, Carly Marie Owen, Jill Patterson, Suzi Power and Emily-Louise Tomlins.
