If the company director is also the company playwright, it may prove inspirational, and perhaps cathartic. Jeremy James Taylor is an intensively lovable person but, if some of his writing is a guide, the person questioning the justice of this general affection is frequently himself. What is undeniable is that his often tortured perception of the fate and suffering of children, depicted in many of his scripts transcends the centuries and, by agonizing over his own situation he has produced great artistic insight. History begins at home.

Jeremy James Taylor's inventive skills and devotion to his young actors make him probably the best-loved person on the Edinburgh Festival Fringe.
