Apologies for the lack of updates here folks, we’ve been incredibly busy trying to pick plays and hunting for directors and generally being so up to our eyeballs we’ve not been able to keep up.
We’ve got a couple of big announcements which have been posted elsewhere but we include here for completeness!
Next Production – Ecstasy by Irving Walsh (Adapted by Keith Wyatt)
After a very difficult review process the next production has been announced and audition notices sent out.
Ecstasy is an adaptation of a short story from the novel Ecstasy called the undefeated:
“The longest story, The Undefeated, presents slice-of-life episodes from the lives of two recreational drug users. Lloyd, an aging clubber, begins to question his life and considers the possibility of falling in love. Housewife Heather leaves her Dire Straits-loving suburban husband and starts a new life amongst the rave scene, where she meets Lloyd”
(Intandem attached to Irvine Welsh’s Ecstasy).
The Director has also been chosen for Ecstasy, Dave McGowan who will be documenting his experiences on this blog. If you’re interesting in performing you can post a comment below and we’ll contact you with details.
expect a follow up post on how else you can get involved.
