I've been asked to write for the Verbally Challenged night at the Contact Theatre for this month.
It's where five writers compete, we're given a topic/theme and write a ten minute piece. We hand our work over and the director and actors work on it, they then perform them on the night and the audience vote for their fave ones.
I did this a few years ago when it was called Flip the Script and I came second. But my scenes went on to be re-worked and BANG-BANG! was formed, my first ever play that got accepted in to the 24/7 Theatre Festival in Manchester.
I'm excited to be doing it again. The topic is 'Why do fools fall in love?' We have to start at the end and end at the beginning - and it typical Sally Lawton style, the idea I've been working on all week has now been pushed out of the way for a new and even better idea... so off I go with the new idea and see where it takes me.
The rough copy has to be handed in tomorrow! Eek, better get a move on!
