Durban audiences will fondly remember actress and playwright Jill Fenson who died last night (November 25) in hospital in the UK after suffering a massive aneurism.

She was a well-known performer on stage and radio and wrote numerous productions which reflected her characteristic ironic humour. She was married to John Moss, former Director of Drama for the Natal Performing Arts Council (now the Playhouse Company) and an actor and playwright himself. Their daughter, Miranda Moss, also appeared in numerous productions.

Tribute to follow.
