Just a minute

A while ago I saw a call for scripts from an organisation called Screaming Media, requesting one minute plays for a thing called "Gone in 60 Seconds", to be put on in either Harrogate (UK) or Brooklyn (USA), by theatre students. And I thought for a while, came up with an idea, wrote it and got the giggles while I wrote it because I thought it was funny, sent it off and forgot all about it.

Well, I guess I'll find out soon enough if anyone else thinks it's funny, because it got selected. For the Brooklyn part of the project.


And the other bit of me is going "hmm, it's going to put on in NYC, will they think it's funny over there?" Maybe my odd English sense of humour won't translate. When I wrote it, I thought it might be the sort of thing actors could have fun with, so I can only hope they do. I'll find out eventually, because the plays are going to be filmed and broadcast on the net.

Here's some blurb:
"The performances at New Workshop Theater, Brooklyn College, will take place at 8pm on June 16th and 17th, and at 2pm on June 18th. Tickets cost $5.00 (All proceeds go to the Harrogate Theatre Brooklyn College Collaboration given annually to a deserving undergraduate theater major who embodies the spirit of collaboration) and can be reserved by calling (718) 951-5000 extension 2762."

Sadly, I can't afford a trip to NYC right now but at least I'll get to see it on film, online. Watch this space.

How exciting!!! What wonderful news, and I would go if I could but unfortunately, I can't... drat!

Clearly, your humour must be transatlantic!

Well done! Let us know when we can see it online.

I meant to say re your last comment on my blog: Yes, definitely will let you know when I attempt the 14 day challenge again. It would be nice not to go it alone! The key is preparation though, I've learned that much.

Nice one. Give yourself a much deserved pat on the back.

As for OR's comment. I too am giving the 14 day feature a second crack as I have one ready to go. Let me know when you start.
