T-Minus

T-Minus

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.

It’s a Short Life Afterall

Sure, it’s a plug, but it’s my blog so it’s my rules. Long story short, there’s a play coming up, starring some dear friends of mine, and directed by a couple of great minds. If you’re in the Warwickshire area and have nothing to do for the evening, why don’t you pop along and see this? It’s a Short Life Afterall is a brilliant new comedy in Stratford Upon Avon.

A brand new piece of comic theatre about the less-than-amazing afterlife. Performances are on the 25th May, 26th May and 1st June at Stratford’s Shakespeare Centre on Henley Street from 9:00pm to 10:30pm. An age advisory of 14 is placed on this show, and bear in mind that it is not for the easily offended.

The story is simple…When we die, we are greeted by annoying bureaucrats (known as reapers) the moment we die, subjected to hours of pointless paperwork and tedious waiting before being bundled onto a mystical lift – then it’s up or down.

One day, the systems fails, and two reapers must save all existence from a delusional aristocrat in just three days, hindered by a reluctant cult, Glaswegian demons, sexist angels and exploding badgers. Prepare for a ridiculous ride to reason’s edge, because death doesn’t have to make sense!

Lonely

Lonely

Wahey! Script number 8! This is a script about the loneliest girl in the world. All her life she’s lived in darkness, never knowing love or friendship. However, one simple event changes her life forever. I wrote this play to practice my chorus/narration writing skills, as well as multi-media techniques. It’s also really surreal, so just roll with it. Plus, it heavily features¬†orchestrated video-game music, so there’s that. ¬†Have fun!
