Been approached about a potential writing project. It is to work with a small group of young writers on a ‘rites of passage’ ten-minute short as part of the royal and derngate theatre ‘young britain’ themed work.
The northampton-based young people are not necessarily theatre writers but might write lyrics or bits and pieces or just have something they want to express which relates to the YB theme.
My job would be to meet with the group a couple of times and then to write a 10-minute monologue or duologue using some of their ideas/words/spirits etc .
I’ve done this type of work before and really enjoyed it. Tight October 15th turnaround with the other stuff I’ve got on but I’ve expressed my interest and so we shall see shall. Let’s make it fit baby.
