The Tiger with Play2C

At the moment I am doing the costume design for Play2C's new English language theatre production of the short, funny piece called The Tiger, by Murray Schisgal, directed by Ali von Stein. I'm madly sewing away for the Long Island housewife character Gloria (played by Khema de Silva), who is kidnapped by Ben (Stu Alexander), postman and philosopher and taken to his dingy New York basement where surprising things happen...!

Our production opens next Thursday night 29th July and runs for three nights at Play2C studio, starting at 8pm. It will return in the autumn for a second run.

Please come along if you live in Berlin. It's a part of the new series 'A Play and A Drink'. Will be fun! Special thanks to Flavia Scuderi for her graphic design.

Das Neue Schwarz

My lovely friend David Ramirez and one of his business partners Tanya Bednar, run the chic and oh so stylish underground boutique Das Neue Schwarz (the new black), for vintage designer clothing, accessories, books, collectibles for the home and jewellery. It's on the very hip Mulackstrasse in Berlin Mitte and is a must-see on this strip of all that's hot in fashion and style. Check out the online shop if you're not Berlin-based and you can still enjoy the yummyness.

Daruma is a cute, very authentic Japanese restaurant and small grocery store, and it's just around the corner from my new home! Here you can eat delicious traditional Japanese food, and stock up on little trinkets, food, and Sake etc. from the "laden". The special feature here is that the rice used in the restaurant is imported from Japan for the most authentic taste, despite our Berlin water.

The kitchen is open until 19.30 in the evenings so make sure you get there for lunch or an early dinner! They also do catering.

Winterfeldt Schokoladen

You'd think with all these scrumptious cake shops and chocolate shops (such as this one near Winterfeldt Platz), that I must be turning into an elephant! I just can't resist a little treat sometimes when I pass by on my bike and this beautifully decorated Retro-style café & chocolate shop was a lovely recent discovery.

Looks like a cosy place to hang out in winter too...
