PEMBROKESHIRE playwright Derek Webb has not just one but six of his plays being performed on the same day – in the USA, UK and Ireland!

‘Calling Time’ – an interlinked series of short plays is on in Burton Leonard in Yorkshire, Wye Theatre Company is performing his spoof on Macbeth – ‘Roy Brown: Bard of Margate’ in Glasbury, Herefordshire, while in Corfe Castle, Dorset his very popular 'Agatha Crusty and the Village Hall Murders' is being performed by Double Act.

Meanwhile, the latest Agatha Crusty, which premiered at Cardigan’s Theatr Mwldan earlier this year, is part way through a three-week run in California with Santa Clara Players performing ‘Agatha Crusty and the Health Spa Murders’

In Birmingham, his play with music about Dusty Springfield – ‘Call Me Dusty’ – which toured South Wales in 2013 is completing an eight-day run at Hall Green Little Theatre. While, just across the water in Ireland, Model Box Productions are notching up awards with his serious drama about assisted suicide called ‘Another Life’.

The play has been entered in the Irish 1-Act Festival and has so far won awards for Best Play twice, Best Director, and Best Actress Award three times for Pauline Greer, its leading actress.

On Friday ‘Another Life’ competes in the next round of 1-act Festivals in Ballymahon, where, if it does well, it could become one of the 2017 finalists at the grand final in Letterkenny.

Webb has more plays in the pipeline too. His adaptation for the stage of the Hitchcock classic film ‘The Lady Vanishes’ tours next March in a production by Fluellen Theatre Company.

And, in June 2018, his fast-paced, hilarious new adaptation of the HG Wells classic ‘The Invisible Man’ is set to be performed at Theatr Gwaun in Fishguard by Ignition Theatre Company.
