A busy month

We had a lovely start to the month with a very warm response to Sixteen at Theatre 503. Thanks to Phyllis and Leona for bringing Gladys and Shanice so memorably to life, and to Andrew for directing the play with such a deft touch.

I’ve found both of the recent Rapid Write Response plays hugely enjoyable and helpful to my development as a writer. With Polythene I could have fun exploring all angles of a three-way power struggle against the backdrop of the worst morning-after-the-night-before ever. While Sixteen was a much more delicate and uplifting piece, containing both the oldest and the youngest characters I’ve written so far.

Meanwhile I’ve been scribbling away on new projects, with a couple of longer plays in the pipeline and a new film script. Hopefully more news on those soon!
