22 June – Red Blindfold by Ben Francis

This week’s ScriptTank reading sees Ben Francis return with a new draft of his stage play Red Blindfold, which was read in February.

Barry has had a fall at work, and he and his wife May are hoping for an insurance pay-out. They say that he can hardly hold a toothbrush. But ever since the accident Barry can’t stop painting pictures. If the insurance company find out they will be arrested for making for a false claim. So, somehow, Barry must be stopped…

The evening starts at 6:45 for a 7pm start at the Blue Posts pub, Rupert Street. The nearest tubes are Leicester Square and Piccadilly Circus.

We’re looking forward to seeing friends old and new next week.

This week’s ScriptTank reading sees the return of Ben Francis, this time with a new stage play: Red Blindfold.

Barry cannot get a job after a fall at work, and his wife May is on a life-support machine.  They want to claim compensation, but one thing might ruin it all – since the fall Barry cannot stop painting. But if the accident has made him paint how can he claim that his life has been destroyed by it?  And so he must be stopped for his own good…

The evening starts at 6:45 for a 7pm start at the Blue Posts pub, Rupert Street. The nearest tubes are Leicester Square and Piccadilly Circus.

This week ScriptTank will be hearing Scavenger Paradise – a stage play by long-time member Ben Francis.

In the rainforest two survivors of an air crash are arguing and trying to salvage what they can from the luggage that surrounds them. They hope to be rescued soon, but when a man arrives in the clearing they soon realise that he isn’t there to rescue them. In fact has a far more sinister agenda…
