Stage Plays by Vince
A dusty, cold, dark area marked out only by a raised profile and some strange aluminium structures sits in front of a row of upturned seats. A stage. Lifeless. Pointless in fact.
But then comes the troupe of willing workers, all ready to transform this innocuous area into an exciting space for the following actors to inhabit.
Lines learnt, lighting designed, directors nervous and a growing crowd of onlookers all ready to be taken on a compelling, imaginary and facsinating journey.
But wait. Nothing is happening. The stage is blank. No technicians. Actors looking for work elsewhere and an audience still at home watching a repeat of a dreary home-makeover show.
This is because nothing, repeat nothing, can start without a writer. And here is my small contribution to avoid this scenario.
Writing plays for the stage is a time consuming process.
The selections here will be just a few pitches. Any development of each idea would need to be discussed at great length over a nice cup of tea.
So, if you are a stage commissioner wondering where your next writer is then follow your heart and investigate the following.
