My play 'Captured' is going to be performed at the Chelsea Theatre
As some of you have seen on Facebook my play Captured is being performed at the Chelsea Theatre on the 18th and 19th of November. You can image how excited I am, apart from a couple of competition wins this is my first work to be performed to an audience. I never intended to become a playwright but hey ho!
Its really interesting how the show is organised and how much work and effort goes on back stage. Each writer has been given the task to sell £200 worth of tickets to help with the cost of putting on the performance at the venue. The reason we chose the Chelsea Theatre is that the head organiser has had a book launch there and knows the staff well. Each writer has met up with the director and had a discussion about the play, actors, props needed etc.
Weve also had to do odd jobs to be ready for the performance such as escorting the directors and actors into the University buildings and placing posters, other advertising tasks etc I was able to sit in on two of the auditions to see what the director looked for in the actors and how he/she casted them. Its been such an interesting experience.
Im not sure if any of you will be in London on 18/19 November but if you are youre more than welcome to come along and watch. Tickets are £15 and if you have a student card you can get a reduced ticket for £10. The show starts at 7:30 and last about two hours. (my play is one of eight plays being performed) Please follow the link if you want to book to book tickets. https://southbankgroup.eventbrite.co.uk/ (If you book a ticket please let me know as I am keeping list of the number of tickets I have sold).
It would be great to see some of you there
