After the band I was in disbanded I found I was bereft of a creative outlet: writing songs had been my muse for many years. I liked the short stories, even though I often wanted to write too much for a 3 or 4 minute song. What was I going to write about I had no clue, at the time. However, I was doing am-dram at a local theatre – Empire Theatre (sadly, it has been knocked down – the lengths people will go to, to stop me from treading the boards!!) and there I heard some of the ghost stories that were told about the place. This kind of got me thinking. Slowly an idea formed, using the theatre as the central part, plus an am-dram group. Ta-dah!
