At the next ScriptTank meeting, we will hear Two Weddings, a TV pilot by Katharine Way.
Sharon and Dave are the most competitive brother and sister ever. A couple of months before Sharon is to marry Gareth, their Nan, who has always sorted them out, drops dead. And dear old gran has £4 million in her will which no one knew about, and leaves it to ‘The happy couple’ but doesn’t name them. As Dave proposes to his boyfriend, but Nan has left a series of tasks designed to make brother and sister get along. But will it all end in tears?
Two Weddings is a pilot for a half-hour TV comedy.
As this is a 30-minute script, we may also hear another short script by Gary, if time allows.
The studio will be open from 7pm, but the reading will start at 7.30pm so the room can be set up.
If you’d like to bring guests to this reading, please let Katharine and Richard know.
The next ScriptTank meeting will be a stage play by Ron Fernee – Special Delivery.
For 10 years, Roy has dreamt of seeing his daughter again. But, when she arrives unannounced at his door for an indefinite stay, the complications of both their lives turn the dream into something more unsettling. A story about love and longing, that’s comic, as well as menacing and sad.
Ron says this is the third draft of his play.

At our next reading, we’ll be hearing a new screenplay by Ian D. Richardson – God’s Triangle. The script is based on Ian’s biography of his great aunt – a missionary in East Bengal during the First World War.
Florence ‘Florrie’ Cox was intersex but didn’t know it, having been brought up in an intensely religious family in an age when sex was a taboo topic. During the First World War, she was caught up in scandal and an Establishment cover-up after marrying missionary Reverend Frank Paice while his mistress, Olga Johnston, waited impatiently in the wings.
We hope to see you next Tuesday, to hear what promises to be a fascinating story.
