Scenic Reality – Thank You!

It’s now been a couple of weeks since Scenic Reality was performed as a rehearsed reading at the Hope Theatre last month. I’ve had some time to digest all the feedback from everyone who came to see the reading and begin working on the next edit of the play. I’d like to thank Abbigayle Bircham, Ayse Huseyin and Olly Nelken (Mornington Media) for managing the recording of the performance.

While the recorded version of the reading probably won’t be publically released any time soon, there will still be more opportunities to see Scenic Reality as well as other projects that I’m a part of by following me on Facebook, Twitter and the blog. My director, Samantha Wright, and I have definately not finished with this show yet so be sure to keep an eye out, but in the mean time here’s a few moments from last month’s show:

Damien Blake has been trying to be a renowned film director ever since they left school. They starts their journey with their three best friends, a bleak outlook of society and a desire to create something important. They ends their journey with only one of these things. Set against the background of rising university fees and rising university pressures, Scenic Reality is about the trials and fears behind moving into the real world and how some of us desperately try to avoid it.

Scenic Reality is coming to the Hope Theatre. On the 27th April 2018, at 3pm, this rehearsed reading will be the first public performance a play that I’ve been working on for a while. Directed by the wonderful Samantha Wright (Co-Founder of New Room Theatre) and with a brilliant cast.

Starfish is Now Available on YouTube

Back in August 2016, my short play Starfish was performed at the Lyric Hammersmith Theatre. I am now pleased to say that a full recording of that performance is available to watch on YouTube. (English subtitles can be turned on by clicking the button in the bottom right corner of the video.)

After a Christmas party that Kaitlyn would prefer to forget; her girlfriend, Nicola, takes her to the beach to try and get her head back together. However, Kaitlyn discovers that Nicola may have other reasons to keep her from breaking down.

Starfish @ The Courtyard Theatre

After a very successful show at the Lyric Hammersmith, Starfish has been chosen to be performed again at The Courtyard Theatre, Hackney as part of a new performance of short plays called ‘Scribbles.’ The show will last for three days from the 18th to the 20th of August and will consist of Starfish and 4 other brilliant plays also from the Lyric show.

Thank you to everyone who supported me at the last show. It was a brilliant evening! You can find a link to pictures from the last performance of Starfish below; as well as where you can buy tickets for Scribbles.

Starfish @ The Lyric Hammersmith

As part of City Lit’s annual Page to Stage program, my short play Starfish has been selected to be performed on the 13th of August 2016. Over the last couple of weeks I have been busy workshopping and rehearsing my play with a brilliant cast and director who I am confident will put on a great performance.
