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.
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.
On 22 January, we will be holding a Shorts Night to open our 2019 readings.
During a Shorts Night, we will be hearing a selection of works that are 10 minutes or less. It is an opportunity to get feedback on short scripts, treatments, outlines and extracts of new pieces.
After the Shorts Night, we will be holding readings on the following dates: 5 February, 19 February, 5 March, 19 March, 2 April and 16 April. During these readings we will hear full-length scripts of theatrical and radio plays and screenplays.
