It's around two months since the last blog update, and there's a good reason for that: we've been busy!
We staged the premiere of Wake to a full house as part of Ryde Arts Festival at the beginning of July, took it to Freshwater Memorial Hall for our first appearance there in a double bill with Oddbox Theatre, and will perform it again in the amazing venue that is Chale Church on August 8 (tomorrow, as I write this!).
Then we will be sailing the Solent (and looking back at the wake of the ship at some point, no doubt ...) to perform as part of a festival run by Southampton Chamber of Arts, on Tuesday night, September 15.
In the meantime, we launched our new Charles Dickens: Storyteller service with story sessions and walkabouts at a Victorian Weekend at Isle of Wight Steam Railway, and Mr Dickens has now been booked to appear on stage at Freshwater Memorial Hall on Saturday, September 5.
We are also working towards recording one of our earlier plays, The Telescope, for radio broadcast later this year. This was first performed at the Ventnor Fringe three years ago, to great response, and was also performed at a one act play festival in Swindon where it was nominated for best play.
Speaking of Ventnor Fringe, we will be performing there next week: a sold out performance of My Boy. This will be a very special night because we are staging it in the writers' hometown, and in their local pub too. We believe this will be the last ever performance of this emotional play. But you never know, do you?!
