Zöe Chandler

Zöe Chandler is one of those people who can do hundreds of things very well. In this photo she demonstrates the ancient technique of smiling while one's hand is on fire. Her other talents include acting, writing, directing, swordplay, photography, understanding cats, drawing pictures (including octopuses) and being utterly amazing in everyday life.

I first became aware of Zöe more than a year ago when she kindly offered to perform some of my work in her role as one of the Finn-Brit Players. Now she is directing a new play she has written herself, The Mourning Primrose, that is due to open next week, a swashbuckling romp featuring pirates, quests and intrigue -- exactly the sort of thing I like best!

Details of the performances are as follows:
Vernissa Hall, Tikkurilantie 36, Tikkurila, Vantaa (right opposite the Tikkurila railway station)
Friday November 16th at 7 p.m.Saturday November 17th at 2:30 p.m. and 7 p.m.Sunday November 18th at 2:30 p.m.
Tickets 8€ (5€ concessions, groups of 10 or more)

If you happen to find yourself in Finland next week, you could do a lot worse than go along. The Finn-Brit Players are an exceptionally fine bunch of talented and stylish people and Zöe is one of the greatest human beings ever to exist in the history of the world!
