It has been a while since the last posting on this blog. Non-Common Wealth life has taken priority, and plans have had to change; mostly because of positive opportunities. The “season” that has been foreshadowed on the website has had to be postponed. The New Zealand one acts will be staged some time in 2014 and the South African play will also be pushed out to a future date. The former because I will be in rehearsal for a brilliant new play at Manbites Dog Theatre, so can’t find the time in the Common Wealth schedule to mount ELEVATOR in September; and the latter because my co-conspirator in the production is unavailable for a while.
So, what to do when plans go awry? Read and read and read and read.
And so I have been. And I’ve found two plays that I think will entertain and challenge and move the Common Wealth audience.
The first will be mounted as a rehearsed reading in aid of PTSD and in collaboration with Delta Boys. We’ll be back at Common Ground Theatre for two nights only in mid August. More information to follow shortly…
The second is a new Australian play from an excellent young writer that I’m hoping we can get rights to. If we do, that production will go up for two weeks in November.
Sparse though it might be, that brings you up to date on the Common Wealth happenings over the past two and a bit months.
Enjoy the summer!
