The Lady Garden - full length play

#LadyGarden

 

The Lady Garden is a brand new project, fresh on the drawing board, penned thoughts, creative ideas formulating into a brand new script. A female Director and a female actor are currently in discussion with me to create schedules, working towards a final script stage. Our funding campagin has commenced to raise funds to show we are serious about creating new writing for the stage. Funds are required for our Stage 1 Project to be able to pay wages, venue hire, food, administration and insurance. This four week project will provide fully paid work for these artisans. The Indiegogo Crown Funding campaign provides different levels of support for you to choose from, we'll pack a punch to match your generosity when you pick a perk. Should you wish to remain anonymous, we will respect your privacy. 

 

A common problem in theatre is a lack of available good quality scripts for women, real women (not a caricature), for older woman and for women from diverse backgrounds. The Lady Garden project will provide:

  • a strong, diverse, powerful and compassionate story for women about women.

  • providing opportunity to work, to perform and speak with a strong voice.

  • a script told by women, constructed by women, for women.

Separating The Dust - full length play

#SeparatingTheDust

 

The final draft of my new full length play (an extension of the award winning one act play of the same name) is complete. Hooray! The script is with a London theatre Director for consideration of working together on workshopping a rehearsed table read, where actors will have worked with the Director prior to the table read and my presence in the room. Actors will be given an opportunity for a Q&A session with me, to clarify characters, dialogue, motive and soforth. Once the rehearsed table read is complete, I will continue to edit the script, working towards a finished working script. 

 

The next step will be to undertake a rehearsed reading, getting the script up on its legs, with an audience present and another opportunity of a Q&A session. 

 

Then, once the final edits have been put into place, the search for a fully funded production will take place.

 

 

Musical Creator

We are currently seeking a creator of music, someone who can write sheet music for Musical Theatre.

 

BRIEF: We require someone to write sheet music for one song. A West End musical theatre show tune. Just the one. The song, itself, would be used for the end of Act One, to bring down the curtain for interval. The feel and sound of the show tune would have a large cast singing and tap dancing, a good old fashioned song and dance number with top hats, tails, sequence, dresses and tap shoes.

 

OUTCOME: The single song show tune will be used in a TV comedy series as a Back Story element to the protagonist in the TV comedy series.

 

ARRANGEMENT: To start with, the single song show tune will be written for piano. Once finalised, it will need to be arranged as an orchestral movement.
