One year ago today, the incomparable Mr Simon Josiffe and I put on our first rehearsed reading. We’d found a small fringe theatre in London that we could hire for the day relatively cheaply and bribed a bunch of actors with the promise of sandwiches and biscuits. A rehearsed reading is a really back to basics affair with no set, props, or costume – the actors meet to go through the material a couple of times but they perform, sitting or standing, with the scripts in their hands.
Hello, Debs here! Thought I’d do you a blog as I’ve just completed my second 28 Plays Later challenge which means that during February this year I wrote, well, 28 Plays.
I suppose the most obvious response to this information
would be to ask “why?” – a question I asked myself on several occasions during
the challenge whilst hunched over my laptop at odd times of night, furiously typing
away at that day’s play.
This time, a brilliant cast of actors will be giving voice to two sitcom pilots: “Domesday” by Debs and “SexQuest” by Simon (more info coming soon, but we’ve had a sneaky peak at “SexQuest” here at Wardle Towers and it’s hilarious).
