The 60th anniversary of the Hungarian Revolution and the rehearsed reading of Distorting Mirrors

To coincide with the 60th anniversary of the Hungarian Revolution of 1956, a successful rehearsed reading of Distorting Mirrors, Peter’s second play was held in the Hungarian Cultural Centre (, Covent Garden, London on 24 October 2016. The occasion was timely since the background of the play is the heroic and tragic Uprising in October 1956 when, for ten brief days, everything seemed possible – even that the country could become free of Communism. The actors, Sarah Berger, Simon Cleaves, Simon Cole, Sean Baker and Jessica Claire were marvellous, and the director, Dave Spencer made the audience believe that they were watching not a reading but a full production. What we need now is funding for a stage production!
