>Discussion on new play development

>An interesting debate on new play development in the States, but with lots of resonances with what goes on in the UK here. This was pointed up by George Hunka at his Superfluities blog. It follows on from Lyn Gardner’s article on the same subject which I’ve flagged up before. I mention all of this because I find my views changing.

Also: playwright Fin Kennedy is hungry for debate at his new blog. He wrote an interesting Guardian article on theatres, playwrights and the issue of risk earlier this year.

Deadline now 2 days away. Many words written – all in the wrong order. Thanks, SBS, for the encouragement.

  1. >Meaningful yet enjoyable theatre is ever so necessary, yet all-too-often, under publicised. It’s great to see the UK theatre scene undertaking challeging new projects, thus theatre websites like this, are a necessary way of whetting people’s appetites to the development of new methods of theatrical performance. “Komedy Kollective Theatre Company” are carefully crafting a big-stage comedy musical called Restart, which will be finished in the near future, and ready for performance to the widest audience, which hopefully should appeal to newcomers to the theatre as well as the already converted.
