New Images Added

I've just added new images of theatre programmes, flyers and other publicity material to the theatre listings for Boeing Boeing, The Taming of the Shrew and If There Is I haven't Found It Yet, all from the Very Gomez private collection. Yes, that means they're mine ;)

In other news, I believe I may have finally, at long last, solved the mystery of "Pinkerton Files"!! That is, I have found a programme that fits the bill perfectly. I'm still looking for proof that it is the Michelle Gomez early work I'm searching for so I won't say any more until I've confirmed it.

Doom Patrol Season 3 reported to premiere in August

Very exciting news that Doom Patrol S3 is expected to premiere on HBO Max on 26th August 2021 with episodes 1 & 2 both airing the same day. This is according to Lance Aufresser of The Doom Patrol Facebook Group. It was announced in March that Michelle Gomez will be joining the third season cast as a series regular, playing Madame Rouge, "a complicated and electrifying eccentric".

Additionally Doom Patrol has just been renewed for a fourth season, though no other details have been released yet for S4.

The Ladies Man Confirmed

Some months ago I began searching for a television programme called "The Ladies' Man" or "The Lady's Man" as it's variously named in a number of Michelle Gomez's bios in theatre programmes, including the one shown for Trainspotting, as well as in a BBC press release from 2004. IMDB has no such programme listed for her and just the name and indication that it was a Granada production isn't much to go on. However, with some detective work and a bit of lateral thinking, I identified a strong candidate shortly before the world shut down to pandemia.

IMDB and the BFI catalogue both list an ...

Student Productions Added!

I am very pleased to announce that I have now been able to add Michelle's student productions to her theatre credits! The Keeper of Archives and Collections at RCS has been extremely helpful and I owe him a debt of gratitude for sending me copies of the original programmes for those productions. The listings can be found on the main Theatre page under the heading Student Productions.

I am advised that the collection may not be complete as large ensemble productions at that time were often credited simply to "the company", making it impossible to identify her involvement, however these are ...

The Manifesto Hunt

Manifesto, by Volcano Theatre Company, is proving to be remarkably elusive. Although the production toured the UK, there is very little information about it online and I have had to piece together the sparse information I've found from newspaper theatre listings that often offer no detail besides the date and the theatre. However, in spite of putting together a decent list of tour dates, I have ended up discarding them all bar one, which is the only one I'm sure Michelle played.

It might be easier to explain my thought process if I provide all the dates I've found before explaining why I've ...
