Meet the Writer & Director

Aleksandra Gordon

Writer & Director of ‘In Reverie’

Aleksandra Gordon

Aleksandra Gordon was born and raised in Surrey, England by her Polish mother. She was always drawn to the arts from a very young age, starting from the age of 4 when she couldn’t stop listening to a collection of Andrew Lloyd Webber’s music. From this she became very determined, and so, continuously pestered her mother to take her to see ‘The Phantom of the Opera’ and ‘Cats’. This didn’t happen as quickly as she anticipated but it didn’t stop her from watching what she could on TV, choosing to watch ballets and operas, like ‘La Traviata’ over cartoons. From her love of the theatre, her interest in film evolved, as she discovered that the movies moved her in the same way.

Why a poppy?

Many know that the poppy is the symbol for remembrance but not everyone is aware why.

We thought it was very interesting to see why the poppy was chosen to be the flower that we use to commemorate the fallen.

100 years…

… since the start of World War 1

Taking a look back at last year which marked 100 years of the start of World War 1.

28th July 1914, World War 1 broke out and lasted until 11th November 1918.

In London last year we saw lots of beautiful commemorations around the city. The most popular one being the field of glass poppies that surrounded the Tower of London. Each poppy symbolised a soldier that lost his life in the war.
