So, what better way to end the summer than with a new script?!
Whoa, first bit of creative writing in over 4 months! What’s going on?!
10 plays, 3 short story, collected in over 350 pages! Year One, a compilation of all my 2013 plays!
A really stupid story with really stupid characters, with some really stupid dialogue and really stupid consequences…
Hey I wrote a super short play for the Pint-Sized Plays Writing Competition 2014!
So here’s T-Minus, my first attempt at an original sci-fi script. Whilst certainly quite rocky in some places (it is a first draft!) I hope you can enjoy it!
In the year 2028, scientists predicted that a massive solar flare would take place in 2142, pretty much wiping out the human population. To counteract this, they developed pods that could harness the solar radiation and launch into outer space. The pods would then travel to Mars, where humanity would start afresh. The play takes place in 2142, and starts with Earth’s final hour. We focus on one particular pod filled with people from many different classes. Tensions are high and the pressure is mounting as the countdown brings them ever closer to the end of the world.
Playbox Theatre pushes its own conventions to the very limit with a controversial play that delivers tremendous blows of passion with every breath.
God I hate philosophers…
So, I’m directing a play that’s opening on Sunday, and we’ve had two rehearsals so far. Normally, a director would be going crazy with anxiety. I’m not. The reason? Because I only have a handful of talented actors and a half hour performance.
