Five Queens of Fela Kuti

August 16, 2009

Just received the Nottm Playhouse brochure. As part of theatre writing partnership’s Momentum festival Black Folks strand I’ve got two extracts playing on both the 26th and 27th october, Boat Gypsies and Fela’s Five Queens (or the Wives (many) of Fela Anikulapo Kuti whichever title I can fix on). Boat Gypsies is done but feeling the pressure with Five Queens. I completed a draft a year ago but now doing a page one rewrite and only on page 30 at moment. Got about 20 days to complete a draft. Don’t really have to complete for the showing but I’d like to. The extract is likely to be the 20 mins or so and probably the opening 20 mins but completing will give us more options. Think I know where I’m going now as regards plot details just need to get it done.
