New season, new venue and a new Shorts Night

On the 25 September, ScriptTank will be returning at a new venue: Theatre Deli Broadgate.

At Theatre Deli we will have a rehearsal studio to hold readings in private and where everyone can be heard.

If you have not been to ScriptTank for a while, please join us again, as we have some exciting new ideas for the future.

ScriptTank will then meet every second Wednesday for regular script readings.

Shorts Night – 25 Sept

Our first meeting at Theatre Deli will be our traditional Shorts Night.

If you would like your work read this night, send a copy of the script to <a href="mailto:Ekway189@googlemail.com"Katharine Way, with a breakdown of the cast needed.

All pieces must take less than 10 minutes to read (around 10 pages of a formatted script).

If you know another writer, director, producer, actor or script editor who would be interested in ScriptTank, please bring them along.

After the reading is finished, join us in Theatre Deli’s bar for drinks and networking.

16 April – The Kiss by Melville Lovatt

On 16 April the final ScriptTank of the current term will be The Kiss – a new stage play by Melville Lovatt.

Melville says that in this short play, “Simon observes his wife and best friend locked in an embrace. The kiss is long, passionate and highly inappropriate. Simon is convinced they must be having an affair and plans a terrible revenge.”

The dates for ScriptTank’s next term have not been confirmed yet. When they are, they will be posted here and in our members’ newsletter.

5 March – God’s Triangle by Ian D Richardson

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.
