Author visits Shepherd's Bush on January 26
About All to Play For: It’s time to tell our story, starting when my new friends and colleagues-to-be were all as fresh, young and wet behind the ears as I was myself. When our hearts were open, and our integrity was still intact.
All to Play For is described as a story of artistic expression vs corporate gain, of how some people make a drama out of a crisis, and others a crisis out of a drama.
