So I've finished the second draft of my play, and I'm now looking to get some people together for a readthrough. However, first of all, I want to decide on a name. The show is currently called "A Day In The Park". It fits, but it's really fucking boring. My issue here is I genuinely… Continue reading What’s in a name?
I promised myself that when I got my new job, I would get back into writing. Today, I completed that promise to myself It's rough, it needs an edit, there are some scenes which are utter bullshit, but the first draft of my new play is finished! Now all I need is three more drafts,… Continue reading First Draft Completed!
I've been working on a new project - it's set in one spot in a park over 24 hours, and shows six little stories of the people we see there. Here's a little extract from one of the recurring stories - our homeless heroes, Sparksy and Mitch, as they discuss a watch that Sparksy has… Continue reading A Day In The Park
I haven't written anything in ages. I haven't had the time, or particularly had the drive. But today, I've started writing a new play. It's called "Five Rules For Living", and I like the way it's started - let's see how far I get with it. For a little taster, here's an extract from a… Continue reading A New Project!
I've had an idea for a new play based off an experience that happened to me the day before New Year's Eve! What's that, I hear you say? I only just finished the first draft of The Storeroom? Eh. I'm in a creative mood. Going to spend this evening working on a draft outline for… Continue reading When inspiration strikes…
After the success of A.D.A.M (three countries and four different runs), I've decided to embark on a new project. I've started writing a new play, which is a comedy based in a hostage situation - I'm trying to broaden my horizons slightly, and thought a straight comedy (with a bit of a bottleneck element thrown… Continue reading New play!
So my play A.D.A.M is transferring to Germany in a few months time, and the company have sent me over the poster. It's a weird feeling, but incredible to see my name emblazoned on the front. Good luck to the company with rehearsals, I'm hoping to get myself out there to see it!
I'm writing a new play for my dissertation (currently called A Complete Fantasy but I might not stick with that), and - without spoiling any of the plot - I thought I'd upload a little extract from the final monologue. I haven't uploaded much new writing recently as I've been focused on performing other pieces,… Continue reading New Play Extract
The following is a monologue from my play, 'A.D.A.M'. In the adaptation of Frankenstein, the speech is from the character of A.D.A.M - an artificial intelligence unit who is struggling with his sentience. "Adam: It is with considerable difficulty that I remember the original era of my being; all the events of that period appear… Continue reading ‘A.D.A.M’ Extract
This is an extract from the Narrator of my play, 'Sonder': "There are billions of people on this earth, each with their own story. Some of them may only ever feature as an extra in yours – a voice in a crowd, an unrecognisable face on the street, or a blur of traffic on a… Continue reading ‘Sonder’ Extract
