JOHN GAVEY never thought he’d be writing plays. He’d written snippets of dialogue and poems for as long as he can remember. When the pandemic forced him to stay home he organized the snippets and poems into a play and the result was Dead Bear. He’s thankful for all of the help Post Productions gave in their playwriting contest. Fingers crossed, hopefully you’ll be able to see another of his plays soon! He’d also like to thank his wife for her patience.
Simon Du Toit as Detective Miles Mallow
SIMON DU TOIT started out playing bad men and policemen years ago, so it’s fun to return to that territory once more! Sometimes there’s not much difference between the two. Simon’s theatre career has included stints as actor, director, designer, professor, dramaturg, historian, published theorist, adjudicator, light and sound operator, floor sweeper, van driver, etc. – a typical life in the theatre! Simon is delighted to be returning to the talented Post Productions team. “We poets in our youth begin in gladness; but thereof come in the end despondency and madness.” -William Wordsworth
