Happy New Year to all Ken Friends!
In the year in which I was honoured to be invited to join RADA as its
President, it was particularly touching to witness once again your astonishing
generosity on my birthday.
My very very grateful thanks for this magnificent contribution. The training
of RADA students, (I can say very confidently having auditoned so many
for our London season), is truly exceptional, and the Ken Friends make more of
that available to even more with this incredible sum. Thank you so much.
That so many of you laid out yet more of your hard earned cash to see our work
at the Garrick was really something. This season could not exist without you,
and I hope that on stage or screen across this next year, you will enjoy the
work to come.
I wish you all great happiness and health through 2016 and beyond, and I thank
you once again for honouring my parents and my alma mater with such staggering
