The episode is again part of the Little Written Extra podcast, which you can subscribe to using the second of these links (though I’m not sure what else will go into it, now that Page to Stage is over). The first is for the regular podcast, which will have some new content imminently:
Unfortunately, due to space limits on Soundcloud, I have had to hive these Page to Stage related episodes off into a second podcast that I’ve called Little Written Extra. The main annoyance of this is that the two podcasts are separate on iTunes, so if you have to subscribe to each one separately:
Episode Four of the Little Written Podcast is out. At only ten minutes long, this is more of a bite-sized offering than the previous entries. This episode features Michael Rumney, the writer of Bricks, one of the eight one-act plays that have been selected for the festival:
I’m intending this to be the first of a series of episodes where I talk to the writers involved with Page to Stage 2016 (I will try to persuade someone to interview me, at some point!). The next one should be out pretty soon, so keep an eye out for that.
Created a page for my 10 minute audio drama Christmas Presents, recorded in 2012. I have included some background notes, written for a competition entry, alongside some very brief comments on how I feel about the play now.
I’m afraid it’s not exactly dripping with seasonal cheer, so if you’re looking for something heartwarming and life-affirming… well, it isn’t that. I hope you enjoy Christmas more than the characters do.
Created a page for my 30 minute 1920s murder mystery audio The Final Act, recorded in 2012. I have included background notes, written for a competition entry, and some random musings about London traffic in the early twentieth century.
I just created a page for my first audio drama short, “I wanted to be useful…” It’s only ten minutes long, so should be easily digestible.
I have included the pitch document for the play, which I wrote for the 2012 Wireless Theatre Company Young Writers Award. It was on the basis of the pitch and a single page script extract that the piece was shortlisted for the prize, so this may be of interest for other writers.
The play even has a brief mathematical reference, right at the end…
Hope you enjoy.
I wanted to be useful…
Garry Martins has had a few bad mornings in his time, but being run over by an articulated lorry and having to argue for the future of his soul in the afterlife probably puts this one in the bottom three…
