Speaking about her new venture, Catherine Tyldesley says, ‘I’m super excited about my first play going into production! 

‘I wrote ‘The Ceremony’ during lockdown. I’ve managed to assemble my dream cast along with one of my all-time favourite directors, the brilliant Lee Salisbury. 

‘Writing has always been close to my heart and to finally see my words brought to life by such incredible talent, is nothing short of a dream come true. 

‘I’m hopeful people will love the play as much as we do and I’m thrilled we can raise money for the arts at the same time.’
