Had the interim meeting day yesterday for the writers’ Lab 09 project. Five writers, myself included have been selected to develop an idea suitable for rural touring venues. There will be a rehearsed reading of extracts from each play presented on 23rd July to rural touring producers so we are all working towards that.
Yesterday involved discussion of each project and then feedback from all involved, writers and artist director’s /company managers.
really useful day and some good notes to take forward for my project. The writing process was very different for all of us so that was good to see.
the next major step for me is to start doing some technical research on canal boats and some serious character biog work.
Deadline for casting is end of June, deadline for extract draft is mid-july. I have a very busy next two/three months with three projects on the go and potentially a short film drama also to add to that and a trip to Brisbane, Oz for a week to fit in!!
