Missing Pieces Theatre Show Ltd – A Biography of Karen Lynne and Graham Howes – Joint Artistic Directors
What is our background?
Missing Pieces Theatre Show Ltd is Graham Howes and Karen Lynne. In 1988 the couple met at Hornchurch Rep and the following year set up Edge of the World Theatre Productions.
Sing As We Go
We first toured the first play that we wrote together in 1989: “Sing As We Go” – which was the true and fascinating story of Gracie Fields.
Karen played Gracie and I directed, and played two of the husbands, in this ambitious four hander. The show crossed over genres and featured many of “Our Gracie’s” songs – winning much acclaim from fans of “Our Gracie” and rave notices in such papers as The Guardian and The Stage.
We built the show from small to mid scale touring to a Number One Theatre Tour on the Commercial Circuit. The show was well received and was on the cards to be filmed after much interest in the media. Sadly Billy Marsh, the Producer, passed away before we could film it!
We then toured an adaptation of Frankenstein by Jem Barnes. This was an ambitious attempt to cross Physical Theatre with Expressionism and yet still remain true to the original text.
It had a tour and a residency at The Croydon Warehouse Theatre and Jackson’s Lane Theatre.
We then focussed on other projects and our Acting and Writing Careers for a while.
We revived our interest in producing and writing together in 2007 and have been developing work since which is outlined on this website MISSING PIECES THEATRE SHOW LTD
We toured COME DANCE WITH ME in 2019 – which crosses a funny and moving epic play with ballroom and Hollywood Dancing – and were about to mount A QUESTION OF ERROL FLYNN when the Covid-19 pandemic struck – we are about to produce A QUESTION OF ERROL FLYNN premiere in Ipswich Suffolk and digitally stream it prior to a national tour.
Our CVs are also onsite.
