STONIER SITUATION (article first published : 2001-10-2)

An account has been opened at the NBS for any donations towards covering the costs of Anthony Stonierís medical bills. The well-known performer had a serious fall while attending the birthday party of actor-designer-director Greg King held on board a catamaran (see separate article).

Shortly after the vessel left the harbour entrance, it hit the breakwater and Anthony was flung about 2,5m into the air before landing on the deck. Actor-director Peter Court was also in the bow and lost his footing but he escaped with scratches while Anthony has a crushed lumbar vertebra and narrowly avoided paralysis. He will be forced to wear a special brace for six to eight weeks.

Anthony will obviously not be able to appear in London Calling at the Rhumbelow Theatre but the show will go ahead as planned without him. It is expected that he will still appear in his next show Letís Misbehave with Carole Trench and Evan Roberts at the Royal Hotelís Backstage, albeit in a back brace!

The savings account opened to assist with medical fees is appropriately named PAIN which stands for Performing Arts Injury Network. Account No: 939 010 6770 and Code No: 720026.
