Faynia Williams is such a rich and profound, long experienced woman in the world of the theatre and the theatre of the world that I just knew she would be a wonderful voice to add to the diverse voices on the Masks of Gender.

It was great to spend talking time with her in the room at the top of the house she shares with her husband, the unique Richard Crane. We’ve had them to dinner a couple of times and never want it to end; the best of company.

In a way that’s what I’m sharing with you; the depth and wisdom Faynia brings to the dinner party of life. Is the world a theatre or is the theatre a world, or both or neither? Well, yes to all of it. For me it’s always great to talk to a someone as experienced and talented as Faynia, someone who has worked with the best to create roles and dramas that are reflections of who we are. It certainly makes for good listening.
