I’m pleased to report that my latest play, ‘Look Out – He’s Got A Gun!’ has been lined up for its première later this year. Javea Players have given the two-act comedy spoof a slot in their Studio Theatre.
The play has come a long way since I was first inspired to write it back in 2017 after hearing various vintage radio plays from the 1940s and ’50s.
I returned to it earlier this year and after completing it, arranged for a test reading with a dozen of Javea Players’ finest acting talent. That trial run went much better than I could have anticipated and the response was overwhelmingly positive. Using the actors’ valuable feedback, I revised the play yet again, and hopefully injected even more comedy into it.
In fact, I was so pleased with the play that I turned it into a paperback novel which will hopefully soon be on my Amazon page alongside my children’s book ‘Uncle Mungo and the Great Wallaby Painting Contest’.
After creating a cover image for the play, I submitted it to my publisher, Stage Scripts, who, to date, have published ten of my plays. I’ll be writing more about the audition process and when rehearsals start in October.
