What a brilliant evening we had for StageWrite this month. Two plays we loved, that worked really well even in the small window of time we had to rehearse. Two engaging writers who clearly enjoyed seeing their work on its feet, and told us about their creative process in the Q & A after the shows.
With only two shows and a total of six roles, our September StageWrite family was small but perfectly formed – Phil, Cally and I (Harri) worked with actors Carl and John – who’ve both been part of previous SW ensembles – and our wonderful technician for the weekend, Simon. Stephanie Connell’s The Curious Case of Lady Fowler was a murder mystery spoof that was so much fun to rehearse, and full of great opportunities for visual humour. Step To The Left by L.A. Green followed, and provided an excellent contrast – an intriguing, intense piece charting an unlikely friendship between a soldier and a protester…with a clever twist.
Thank you to our fantastic actors, technician, writers and audience. Join us for the next StageWrite evening back at The Place on Saturday 14th March 2020, to be the first to sample two more box-fresh pieces of theatre.
