2022 has been good year for watching amazing theatre, particularly at Bristol Old Vic. Also keeping my script Age Queer ticking over around my networks, including the Old Vic where it reached the second round of the Ferment (new work) commissioning process for further development. Glad I got that far! At the time of writing this I plan to submit Age Queer for two imminent competitions prompting me to update/enhance it even more.
Thinking of changing titles, I’ll be moving away from Ageing and Ageism to develop new work throughout 2023. Throughout the last few months of 2022 I started work on two new projects: Euro Gothic – this an expansion of my early iterations of The Overcoat. I performed some of this at a fundraiser we held in December for Travelling Light Theatre / Big Give Challenge and will be considering its potential as a solo show.
Second up is Holiday Haunts for which I have been doing extensive research. My source material is a battered, foxed copy of Great Western Railway’s Holiday Haunts Guide 1923. I’m hoping to pitch this historical artefact as a springboard for a community performing/applied arts project soonest.
This blog has served as deposit box for writing or an aide memoire rather than an interactive site. The domain is just about to renew so I will stick with it for the time being. I'm pleased with some of the blogs I've written, particularly those I wrote at the outset and during Lockdown and plan to condense them. Missing is a topic list and one of my things to do is to get help with the tech to sort it.
Big love, big hugs.
