I would love to make contact with Buddy Dalton. I was a client of Anne Zahl many years ago and am currently appearing in a new play by Pat Rowe called Jerusalem Tango, which is being produced by Brian Daniels of New End Theatre Beyond. Fond memories.

I was an old friend of Buddy’s daughter Judy, and am the sister in law of her old friend, Arnold. I would love to make contact with her by e-mail, simply to ‘catch up’.
