Would anybody like to produce/direct a play that I have written? I don’t really want to produce or direct it myself, as I feel too close to the work and I think it would benefit from somebody else’s interpretation to take it further. I’d also relish the chance to work with an enthusiastic and capable producer/director capable of working miracles (of the Humean kind) on a miniscule budget.
In brief, the play is:
A contemporary melodrama
For five actors: 2 males 28-35 and one 50-65, plus two females, one 28-35 and one 50-65
One setting only: the living room and downstairs bedroom of a contemporary house
Approximately 100 minutes in duration
The story is about the disintegration of a northern, lower-middle class family over the course of one evening as all their carefully built-up delusions come crashing down. There are themes of marriage and religion as well as the tensions that run between families and generations.
If you’d like to see the script, please drop me a line at firstname.lastname@example.org and I’ll be happy to send it along with no strings or expectations.
