I was fortunate enough to see Max Lindsay’s production of my play Feathers in the Snow at the Nuffield Theatre, Southampton. It was a stunningly directed show: lucid, inventive, moving, beautifully acted and delivered (as it should be, but not always is) at break neck speed. The young cast clearly adored him and he got something very special from each of them. Since then I’ve seen more of Max’s work, and been lucky enough to get to know him, and I think he’s one of the most exciting young directors around: brimful of ideas, inspiring and inspired in equal measure. I cannot recommend him highly enough.
