As you’ll see, I’m useless at uploading pix and arranging on a page… but you’ll get the general idea… There’s about 50 pix on the Facebook page of Salisbury Arts Centre Scriptwriters.

All pix by our friendly photographer, Tim Kidner

Times Six – New Writing Event

Rocket Project Launch – Was it Real?

Feeling spaced out after launch of scripts on Sunday, well, someone had to say it.  Relieved it turned out a success by all accounts.  People came!  Buzzy atmosphere and had some enthusiastic feedback from audience. Here are some starry-starry pix of the rehearsals during the day, taken by Tim Kidner.

Salisbury Playhouse new season brochure launched itself onto the world this week with an electrifying cover photo by Tim Kidner – Tim takes the pix for Scriptwriters’ Doo Dah too, so we’re kinda excited about that.

Seven Minutes of Fame

What a week. David’s success with Dialogue on Wednesday, then Thursday night we put together a showcase of 7 writers’ work in 7 minutes – undying thanks to actors Jon Nash, Kerry Stockwell, Joe Bossano and the Jon Nash who directed – all did a great job in spite of my manic blah de blahs. 

The Seven Writers: Alison Barclay, Anthony Fairweather, Gina Gough, Linda Morse, Jeff Page, David Watson, John Yates

My role in this was to try and represent the work of Scriptwriters’ Doo Dah writers in the space of a 7 minute performance.  No problem.  I love cutting, cutting, cutting and more cutting.  Note to Self: you know when you’ve spent 3 days cutting 200 pages down to 6 and you think you’ve finished?  You haven’t.
