Elevator Pitch

A free script available to any Am Dram group that wishes to stage it when this Covid-19 outbreak is over. It is an adult black comedy with 5M and 2F adult players. It has not been staged before and there are no licenses or copyright issues. It is modern, black comedy in the style of Joe Orton. I enclose a synopsis plus an autobiographical piece listing my former writing achievements.

Who is the mysterious Creeper who is terrorising the good womenfolk of Knobswroth? Will Bedfordshire police ever get their man? Is Lisa-Louise Littleworth having multiple affairs behind husband, Rick’s back? And why does Rick spend so much time in their garage and come home late from evenings out?
Could P.C Max Head, with his First-Class Honours degree in English with a minor in Georgian ceramics, fulfil his dream of becoming the Wolf of Threadneedle Street or even Prime Minister!
All these questions and more – may or may not be answered – in Shocked to Fame – the only thing that’s certain is that, when Private Investigator, Amy Dick, starts looking into Lisa-Louise Littleworth’s alleged affairs, she opens up a right Royal can of germs!

Review
Thank you for the opportunity to read your play, which is a well-constructed and hilarious black comedy. You have successfully created a narrative that is engaging and entertaining throughout. Characters are well-developed and believable. They have well-conceived objectives that conflict cohesively and produce good drama, whilst your dialogue has an easy, natural rhythm to it…

COVID-19 Government Guidance What you can and can't do - FAQ
2.10 When can I gather in groups of more than 6?


If you live in a household with more than 6 people, you can continue to gather in and attend all settings together. This same applies for your support bubbles. All venues should continue to accomodate groups larger than 6 who live together or are in the same support bubble to gather in and use their services and venues.

There are exceptions where groups can be larger than 6 people, including:

- for work, or the provision of voluntary or charitable services
- registered childcare, education or training
- supervised activities provided for children, including wraparound care, youth groups and activities, and children’s playgroups
- providing support to a vulnerable person
- providing emergency assistance, and to avoid injury or illness or to escape risk of harm
- to continue existing arrangements where children do not live in the same household as both their parents
- fulfilling a legal obligation such as attending court or jury service
- weddings and civil partnership ceremonies and receptions – up to 30 people, in a public place
- funerals – up to 30 people. This does not include wakes, other than for religious ceremonial purposes.
- other religious and belief-based life cycle ceremonies – up to 30 people, in a public place. This only covers the ceremonies, and does not include celebrations of these events.
- organised sport or exercises classes or licensed outdoor physical activity. This does not include informal sport or fitness activity with family or friends – this must be limited to a group of 6.
- elite sporting competition and training
- support groups – formally organised groups to provide mutual aid, therapy or any other form of support. This includes support to victims of crime, recovering addicts, new parents, people with long-term illnesses, those facing issues relating to their sexuality or gender, and those who have suffered bereavement.
- protests – if organised in compliance with COVID-19 Secure guidance

Where a group includes someone covered by one of these exemptions, they are not counted as part of the gatherings limit. This means, for example, that a tradesperson can go into a household of six without breaching the limit if they are there for work.

Auditions: Thursday 1 October 7.30pm ~ 9.30pm
Sunday 4 October 2.30pm ~ 5.00pm
Performance dates 19-24 July 2021 at Hatherop Castle


The Tempest shows us the world’s greatest playwright at the height of his powers. Probably the last play that he wrote, it offers exquisite poetry, complex characterisation, deep emotions, supernatural intervention, raucous comedy, and more music than any of his other works. Set entirely outdoors, it is short, entertaining and full of action. It needs no complex scenery or scene changes, but provides extensive opportunities for backstage creativity in props, lighting, sound, special effects, costume and make-up. For many, it is his finest achievement.
Prospero is the central role. But there are ten other speaking roles of various ages, each of 100-200 lines. At least half of these could be women.
Come and be part of it!

If you would like to audition but are unable to make either of these dates we still want you, so please contact director@arcadians.org before the end of September to arrange an alternative.
Audition guidance, some suggested pieces and an audition form are attached to this email and can be downloaded here. Auditions will be conducted in accordance with current Covid-19 requirements at the time, so if you could notify Jonathan at director@arcadians.org if you are intending to audition it would help with planning.

After The Turn: The Mystery of Bly Manor by Nine Knocks Theatre

Reviewed by: Elaine Chapman @elainec46302904

Review date: 17th Aug 2020

Edinburgh Fringe venue The Space has created a range of online productions that are available between 8th-30th August 2020 during the time in which the Festival would have been taking place. With lockdown taking its toll on the entire Arts and Theatre industry many productions have created online performances.

One of the productions available is After the Turn: The Mystery of Bly Manor which has been written and directed by George Cooper and Ellie Hardwick the writing duo have set their piece five years on from Henry James’s novella The Turn of the Screw.

The television-style documentary production uses interviews from friends and family to piece together the events leading up to the mysterious tragedy surrounding Theodora (Eilidh Gibson). The main focus in presenting the evidence takes the form of video diary entries which she had left behind. These are sensitively presented by her dear friend Marcus Bryson (Brian Weldich).

Theodora Hill was hired as the governess for the two Bly children Miles and Flora while in residence at Bly Manor. The excitement and enthusiasm in accepting her new role are short-lived as a stranger appears unsettling her and causing immense anxiety. The dark and eerie mystery surrounding Bly Manor soon begins to unfold before her.

The gripping short ghost story created by James in 1898 has been captured in this modernised version. The cast brilliantly succeeded in creating the horror and dread first bought to life through the original novella.

It’s extremely tempting with a production of this calibre to write an in-depth review explaining everything that they have achieved. However, I don’t want to spoil anyone’s enjoyment of the chilling performances. Therefore, I would strongly urge you to take the time to watch it while it’s available online.

As creatives have begun to produce work during the COVID-19 pandemic. This is one of the exceptional examples available until August 30th. Nine Knocks Theatre company have shown the wealth of talented actors in their company along with their ability to create a powerful and atmospheric performance without actually being on the same stage.

Four Stars.

Hi, I hope this is okay to post. You are all my last hope.
I really want to do the stage play of dinnerladies! By Victoria Wood. I know there are two out there. Does anyone know where I can go to ask about the rights? I have tried everything. I contacted David Graeme who is he authors but he’s the wrong David Graeme. Has anyone had any luck tracking down the scripts or the rights for this?
Thanks in advance
