Back in the director's chair for the first time since she wrote and directed the original pantomime Snow White and the Seven Lumberjacks is Jane Spamer. The panto has been published professionally. Some directors fight shy of thrillers but Jane is pleased to direct Being of Sound Mind. Last year she played a policewoman in the murder play Silhouette at the Blackmore.
The highly talented and experienced actress Fin O'Leary, who thrives in roles which portray a range of human emotions, is well cast in the lead role as the attractive, highly-strung Susan, who is recovering from a nervous breakdown. She finds herself facing a series of confusing and terrifying events. Mark Bazeley, who last appeared at the Blackmore in Anyone for Breakfast? plays her firm and ruthless husband, John. Mark's real life wife, Karen, is cast as, the rather chic, Judy.
Is she as kind and sympathetic as she seems?
