Finito


I finished it tonight. Amongst other things, like a 7k jog, like a card game at the community hall followed by a long telephone chat with a friend who is leaving for a cruise to Alaska in the morning.

It was nearly finished anyway. I started it on Sherkin Island and fell upon it every chance I got, packing it in with my book and my android and my notepad and my camera and taking it with me everywhere so I could stroke it and add colouredy squiggles to it. Like a well loved pet. Well, so it is.

So I knew what the end should be. And tonight I wrote it.

And it's, like, done. Seriously done.

A two person play. I'd always wanted to write a play about two women with a secret. I knew the secret but they didn't. So then they find out and tell me about the secret. And you too when you see it.

And today I told one person, then another. About this play and these two women. And they got excited too. As excited as me.

Let the production meeting begin. Then the auditions. Then the table readings. Then.....

I am over the moon. Elated. Excited.

Writing does this to me.

  3. Would you have the two women be sisters,mother and daughter,strangers or two friends from childhood to the present ? I'm curious.

  4. That's great. I hope there are companies as keen to put it on as you were to write it! And yes, I'm also curious about the nature of the relationship between the two women.

    we have our own theatre company of which I'm on the board.

    My challenge will be (I think) to get 2 actors who can interpret it the way I want. I have 2 in mind who were part of the cast last year. If they agree.

  9. Hi Jo:

    As I get nearer to production and casting I will publish more info. I have to be careful until it is copyrighted.

Some of you are having trouble, I've removed captcha and verification so we'll see how that goes. My apologies. Blogger is putting up far too many roadblocks. Thanks for the emails alerting me.
