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.
The final reading of the 2018 run of ScriptTankwill be next Tuesday – 4 December. We will be hearing the first draft of a screenplay from Richard Cosgrove: The Box.
After a simple heist goes wrong, three criminals – a hacker, a hired gun, and a getaway driver – gather in a locked apartment with their score. If they can survive the next two hours, they are promised the biggest payouts of their lives. Each is ready to betray and be betrayed, but none are ready for what is inside the “box”.
The Box is a micro-budget science-fiction thriller about our culture’s reliance on technology and capitalism.
As this is the last reading for 2018, ScriptTank’s organisers wish you all a happy holiday season.
We will be returning in January 2019.
