ScriptTank is now on hiatus. But we are returning in September at a new venue: the Theatre Deli Rehearsal Studios.
We would like to invite our members to join us for ScriptTank’s new start on Wednesday, 25 September.
Theatre Deli offers us a space that is designed for readings and rehearsals, which will make it a great new home for us.
Our call for pieces will go out in late August.
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.
We can now announce the dates for ScriptTank’s winter 2019 schedule.
Our first meeting after our break over the festive season will be Tuesday, 22 January. We’ll then be meeting every fortnight, until mid-April
