Next Tuesday’s ScriptTank will be hearing a new stage play by Mark Lindow: Estimated Waiting Time.
Alyssa, 45, and Lewis, 15, meet one night at the swings in the middle of their East London council estate. She’s trapped at home with her mother, who needs a minor operation to fix her incontinence, and refuses care until it happens. He’s also trapped at home with his mother having been excluded from school and is forced to wait for a place at a referral unit so he can finish GCSEs. Both trapped by the circumstance and family they form a friendship that could lead to saving one or both of them from themselves.
We’ll be meeting at 6.45pm for a 7pm start on Tuesday, 17 October. We do encourage members to arrive earlier to order food and drink from the venue before the reading begins.
There will be a £3 fee for this meeting.
