So I’m sat in the pub, and my good friend and “Script This Lincoln” Stage Manager Darren looks at me from across the table of fresh drinks, and and gives me the silent ninja two-handed “clicky camera” signal.
I know means that the next instalment of Script This Lincoln is around the corner, and an opportunity for me to take some stage photos!
It was another successful outing for the team behind Script This Lincoln, featuring 4 excellent scripts, performed so well by the actors.
1) Aspiration, by Simon Littlefield
2) Tremors, by Sarah Gordon
3) Tomatoes, by Joe Hayden
4) Shed Man, by Kevin Jones
I do enjoy attending these performances as you never really know what you’re going to get. Sometimes it’s a monologue read by a single actor or actress. Sometimes it’s a group of performers. Sometimes one of the group will climb onto the floor or spread themselves out across a series of chairs to help create the scene. Even though the only stage props tend to be chairs, I’m always kept on my toes when the script reading begins!
One of the script writers, Joe Hayden who wrote “Tomatoes”, and represented by Kay Hayden (@assidens), very kindly got in touch after the session. I was delighted to hear that they wanted to use some of the Script This Lincoln photos for his own promotional work.
I asked for a little bit about Joe, and Kay said, “Joe has been working with Lincoln based Red Dog Film for the past couple of years. Red Dog Film have an arm to their company called ReBrand. ReBrand supports young people, many with mental health needs and disabilities to develop their skills via film making. And Joe hosts the “What’s On Show” on Siren Radio on Friday afternoon.”
“Script This Lincoln was incredibly helpful and we chatted to one of the other writers Simon Littlefield, who writes for BBC Radio 4 ‘The News Quizz’. Simon was very encouraging to Joe and suggested that Joe submitted his work to the BBC new writers program.”
So it’s safe to say the event was a sucess all round! Here’s a few shots from the session…
Thanks for taking a look at this update featuring Script This Lincoln!
