ScriptTank is now on its summer break.
Our first meeting after our summer break will be 2 October.
We will then meet on 16th and 30th October, 13th and 27th November and 4th December.
We hope you will be able to join us again for our 2018-2019 year.
Until then, we hope you can make the most of this hottest of summers.
ScriptTank on 10 July will be hearing (potentially) two new stage plays by Melville Lovatt: The Powers That Be and a short work entitled The Kiss.
The Powers That Be
Matt and Gary are minding a man and awaiting instructions from the powers that be. Instructions which will decide the man’s fate, and also, unbeknown to Gary, his own. For Gary, the time has finally come to prove himself to the powers that be. It’s an aptitude test of some kind, that’s all.
If time allows on the night, we may also hear Melville’s short piece The Kiss.
After seeing them kissing, Simon is convinced his wife, Sonya, is having an affair with his best friend, Clive. The kiss triggers in Simon a desire for revenge, bringing into sharp focus the fragile boundaries of friendship. Beneath seemingly inconsequential conversation, a darker narrative begins to unfold which leads to an ironic, ambiguous conclusion.
The reading is being held on the night of a World Cup semi-final, but we hope you can make it no matter which teams are playing that evening.
We have one more reading confirmed for next week on 17 July. After that, ScriptTank will be taking its summer vacation and will return in the autumn.
ScriptTank is taking a short break over Ramadan, as our venue is not able to host us.
This means we will be restarting the season in late June. The new dates are as follows:
- 26 June – Filling the Gaps by Sarah Davis
- 3 July – Natalie Ekberg’s A Miracle for Minty
- 10 July – The Powers That Be by Melville Lovatt
- 17 July – A new play by Kate Lock
- 24 July – Venue availability TBC
The full details about the reading on 26 June will be posted closer to the time.
