Here it is: The line-up for the third Represents… showcase!
We wish to extend our thanks to all the writers from across the UK who have sent us their work in response to the theme of Mayday. It has truly been a pleasure to read such a broad range of plays, all of which include significant female characters and in doing so bring theatre in the UK closer to achieving realistic gender representation.
We are excited to be able to announce the line up for the third Whoop ‘n’ Wail Represents… returning to Waterloo East Theatre on 27th & 28th April 2015:
Whoop ‘n’ Wail Represents…Mayday
The Clearing by Paul Howard, directed by Alice Bonifacio
The Shipping Forecast by Lizzie Bourne, directed by James Callas Ball
The M Word by Brian Redmond, directed by Georgie Weedon
Madjesty by Ali Kemp & Deborah Klayman, directed by Paul Taylor
Resting by William Patterson, directed by Janet L Palmer
Grit by Sarah Davies, directed by Marc Kelly
Congratulations to all the successful playwrights, and we look forward to seeing your work on stage at the end of April!
We are welcoming Lizzie Bourne back to Represents… as she has performed in the previous two showcases and is now sharing her talent as a writer. Alice Bonifacio and Paul Taylor are also returning as directors for Team Represents…; and we are delighted that James Callas Ball, Georgie Weedon, Janet L Palmer and Marc Kelly will be joining them for the first time.
Our playwrights have been put in touch with their directors and casting is well underway.
