Very pleased with feedback so far for my short play Park and Ride, wonderfully brought to life by director Alison Comley with Dee Sadler and Dan Winter as the couple who meet in a location randomly decreed from the Bristol A-Z for my contribution to Theatre West's autumn season of new writing. "Big themes of loss, redemption, love and loneliness all satisfyingly embedded in flawed human lives. Very touching, poetic and neatly done." ~ "Vitality and humour... a chunk of unusual life"~ "really enjoyed, performances and direction were great. A powerful piece with a lot of layers to it." Trips to Alma Tavern Theatre for this and David Lane's longer play Rush (both nicely reviewed by Remote Goat) are preoccupying me this week, but my Nevertheless co-producer Rosie Finnegan has been even further afield: her short play The Chamber is in production with Goat Theatre Company for Halloween Night at Ye Olde Rose and Crown Theatre in East London! What's next for the blazing aspirations of Frome's scriptwriters? you ask. I'll tell you: Flaming Crackers, our festive production at the Cornerhouse on December 13th. Put it in your diaries now!
