It's standard to say 'tickets are selling like hot cakes on a cold night - there may be a few seats left!' etc...
But they aren't selling like hot cakes. They are BARELY SELLING 'to be Frank' ;)
I can understand it - many people will think they've seen it before - but as I've said before this is a bold new version - a re-invention from director IAN CURLEY that has given the play a fresh vibrancy, new blood and is exploring depths of the character untapped. It's already reaped dividends in the excellent reviews we got at The Octagon Theatre, Bolton in September. It's going to be a real shame if this plays to just a few people but that won't stop the effort Ian and I are putting in, nor the tremendous efforts Future Artists are putting in promoting the production.
It's a fifty minute play, and you can have a drink while you're watching it, indeed you could make a night out of it and have a meal in the Black Lion before the play kicks off at 8 pm. As with any performance I'll be giving it my best shot each night for this limited run. Once over I'll be diving into the next production in the series -DIANE'S DELI which will be premiering in the New Year - a play I would never have written, along with all the other critically acclaimed productions on this website if it hadn't been for a certain bastard loan shark, sociopathic monster, owner of the infamous Paradise Heights Night Club THE ACE OF SPADES...FRANK MORGAN.
No doubt he has damaged many lives around him throughout the series, his shadow falls on many things in Paradise Heights - many people there strive to be like Frank, many dream and scheme of bringing him down.
Not that that bothers Frank. All his life he's taken on some of the hardest that have ever drew breath and they've all ended up broken...or buried. But as those who see this production will see...his toughest opponent of them all is himself. For the next three nights Frank Morgan will tussle with the Devil, a Devil he knows too well, a Devil he see's in the mirror every day...
Title Fight. Can he win? Get yourself a ringside ticket...
Share the blog, spread the word....it would be lovely to see you. Joe x
