20 Nov – Hope Street by Alan Kramer

Next week, ScriptTank will be hearing Hope Street – a pilot for a comedy series by Alan Kramer.

In the mid-80s, Sean Savage dreams to form a band at Liverpool’s legendary College of Art where John Lennon and Stuart Sutcliffe started their creative partnership. But in a city overflowing with bands, Sean will have to fight musical apathy, face gangs robbing equipment, and prove to his peers and his radical department head that he has what it takes to be a true artist. On this journey of self-discovery, making friends, enemies, and finding love and inspiration from unlikely sources, he realises he might be moving in the wrong direction.

This is a coming-of-age, drama/comedy about finding your creative calling. How adversity and conflict can help overcome self-doubt and be the driving force and influence for creativity and artistic expression. How important time and place can shape one’s artistic destiny.

This week, the reading will begin at 7.30pm. Members can arrive from 7pm.
