Greetings from New York City! Having been a student at Oxford in the 1980s, I have a special affection for the place, and it pleases me to imagine that a play of mine is being performed there! I wish I could be there to see it, and to meet you personally! In lieu of that, Helen Taylor has asked me to write a few words.
