The Best of Times

I’ve had a choatic couple of weeks (in a good way) with loads happening on the writing scene: the Emerging Doo Dah Writers had their first meeting in Salisbury Playhouse on Saturday afternoon thanks to an invite from Mark Powell.  I was beside myself.  It’s so good to have a place to meet and I’m looking forward to meeting Gareth Machin, the new AD. Exciting times.

If there are any playwrights in Salisbury and surrounding areas reading this who’d like to join the group, just drop me an email with a brief biog including where you are at with your writing. The Emerging Group is for writers with playwriting experience – I do run workshops for beginners too and most of the Emerging Group have come through the workshops over the last two years.

Talking of workshops, we had a visit from Sarah Dickenson, senior reader at the Soho, who led a challenging workshop last week and made us all write stuff. Imagine.

Meanwhile, I’m delighted to report that Doo Dah David Haworth’s play I Heard An Angel Singing has been selected for a reading at Theatre 503 on 7th November – a great opportunity to have his work read by professional actors in London.

More Doo Dah successes:

  • Alison Barclay’s monologue ‘Dressing Up‘ was performed in Salisbury as part of Bootleg Theatre’s 15 Minutes of Fame tour.
  • Gina Gough’s ‘A Bump in the Night‘ has been selected by Core Theatre for a performance in Malloys, Bath on Sunday 30th October.
