So, chill out now yeah? Kick back for a while and rest? Those that know me will know that I don't like the grass growing under my feet...so, no, I'm not chilling out - something is cooking.
A Tale from Paradise Heights
The next Tale from Paradise Heights will soon be upon us. I completed the writing of the first draft of this back in July. The thing with Tales from Paradise Heights for me is always about raising the bar with each new tale, trying to do something that was better than the last one. This tale is already the best tale I have written in the series so far.
It's a thriller, a mystery, a love story, a horror story. A first draft filled with layers, colourful characters (at least one well known to Tales from Paradise Heights fans) and I believe it's a tale that will chill, thrill and excite, a tale that will have audiences laughing and shedding a tear or two. After Ian Curley's FANTASTIC direction on I'M FRANK MORGAN I had no hesitation in sending it to him with a view to him directing it, he is doing, so we've already got a winning combination.
After sitting and chatting with him about it some really interesting idea came out of it. Ian was alive with ideas around it, so I'm set to give it another draft. A reshaping; what is already a cracking tale will only get better.
It's par for the course to approach theatre's in the area with a view to putting it on; whoever scores this as a premiere theatre wise is going to be glad they did. So I'm trying something a little different. I'm asking theatres to approach us - to invite us in for a chat about it - my best script so far; have a look at the canon of work on this site that has come from Tales from Paradise Heights potent combination of writing/directing and acting from some of the best casts in the region - if not the country.
I know I'm being optimistic...it's supposed to work the other way round. Actually it's probably quite outrageous and impertinent, how dare I? I know...it's not a two way street, but wouldn't it be nice if it was? Be bold and invite us in from the cold...something is cookin' down the Deli.
