London (and Mayo) Calling

010

Exited to learn that the inaugural Fizzy Sherbet evening of new writing by women, features my 12 minute play “Lakukuku”. The seven rehearsed readings will be presented at the Hackney Attic on January 24th – if you’re up that way, do come along!

And, and, and…  A 30 minute play of mine, “The Dog in the Tree House” is a finalist for and will be presented at the Claremorris Festival, Co. Mayo this March (date TBA). By happy chance, I have a two week residency at the Heinrich Boll cottage in Co. Mayo at precisely that time (sweet serendipity) so will definitely be in Claremorris to see the performance.

If any of you are in London, or Mayo, I hope you can make it along!

    Great that you’re in Claremorris at the exact time your play is on. Sometimes life delivers you the exact results you want.

    Hi Sue, it would be nice if you could expand an occasional blog to include some more thoughts on your writing methods and ideas in general. Not wanting to sound critical but your posts too often seem like a bit of a litany of acceptances and info about where your work is on. I would like to know more about your thought ‘process’ as a playwright. What makes you tick! Thanks in anticipation!

      Hello biotanactor, thanks for your comment. I think you’ll find a litany (probably way too much) regarding processes and writing approach in the archives. My most recent posts have been about my work for two reasons: 1) I feel I’d said all I could say about process and needed fresh material and 2) I genuinely have a lot of work on right now, and I think its important to let people know. Feel free to look through the archive – you’ll find plenty of information methods and approaches re inspiration, structure, character development, location, temporal setting, plot development, language, editing, submitting etc… And you’ll find that reference to my own work is rare and largely in recent months. All the best!
