Boat Gypsies- rural touring project

May 5, 2009

Really enjoying this project. I intended to have a draft done by this interim point but am not going to make that self-imposed deadline due to drift and illness. Decided a few days ago to try and get a really tight first half.
I always imagined an interval and wrote a treatment with that in mind but am now considering whether this is necessary. The two plays I saw last week were very different and have given me a number of contrasting useful thoughts.
Enjoying the draft and as usual not sticking to my treatment. I use them as sketches and am continually developing and incorporating new ideas and extending ones that are in the treatment already. I use treatments as jumping off points, guides and conversation/discussion points. This sometimes causes problems. Process will out. Check out the Double Diamond design process for an idea of one of my methods.
