100 Years ON...

Mansfield musings

This January marked the centenary of the death of  Katherine Mansfield. The original award-winning show was first staged in the centenary of Mansfield's birth. Now 'a lifetime on' Casson has been writing a series of blogs musing on different aspects of Mansfield and her relationship with 'Tiger' John Middleton Murry as she worked at re-imagining Two Tigers. The latest Mansfield Musing looks at how it has become a musical as modernist as the writer herself.

'A secular hymn for of the most beautiful things I've ever heard...  sublime'


A Vigil for Justice, Humanity and Human Rights

Sue Casson's highly acclaimed song cycle which tells the story of the birth of modern human rights through the eyes of David Maxwell Fyfe returned to Edinburgh this summer to resume a vigil for human rights.

It shines the light of the past on our troubled present highlighting the issues of Justice for Ukraine and the Holocaust Memorial Day Trust, as it garners cross-party support for a 'Convention Coalition.'
