What do Greyhounds and Richard II have in common?

Two Simply Grey Models will be starring in a fabulous theatre production of Richard II!

Little did Sonja and I know that during the opening night of the Christchurch Exhibition in July of last year, Director David Sheard was perusing our canvas pieces.  It wasnt until later in the evening that he approached us about the production, informed us of his idea to include greyhounds and asked if we would consider being the official photography team.

Of course the answer was YES!

Plans are now underway and the stills photography will be starting in the coming week.  The two "soon to be famous greyhounds" are attending rehearsals, having hair and make up done and catching up on their lines.  They are very busy.

We encourage all that can make it, to come along to this fabulous night of entertainment - I have had the fortunate opportunity to sneak around "behind the scenes" (no pun intended) and I cannot speak more highly of this production.  A most stunning example of amazing talent.  David Sheard has kindly offered his generous support to Simply Grey and will be donating a portion of proceeds from ticket sales to our project so that we can continue raising the profile of greyhounds throughout New Zealand.  Thank you David!
