My play Captured has been performed at Uni
Yesterday my play (Captured) was performed at UNI by three professional actors as part of my Writing performance module. There were fifteen plays performed in just under 45 minutes. Each actor was given a part in about five different plays, sometimes just sitting on chairs by the side making sound effects like police sirens and the such. Some plays only had sections performed because they were too long and had to many scene changes while others were able to have their entire play performed. We brought our guests (In my case, Mum) for drinks at the student bar beforehand. Afterwards we went down to a pub by Waterloo Station called the Fire Station for drinks. (My first alcoholic drink. I was told it only have 4% alcohol in it but I have no idea what it was, my friend brought it for me.)
Two of the actors Enzio (aged 50 from the Midlands) and Rodger (Aged 27 but he only looked about 18) said my play was their favourite one they were given to perform. They said it was because it was different to the others. Most of the other plays were about sex, drugs or relationships. Mine was about the war in Iraq.
Ive been told my lecturer Alex Mcsweeny recorded the performance. When we are given a copy Ill try to post it on here so everyone can see.
