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.
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.
