My 50th Post!
Wow, this is my 50th post in my blog! Feels like yesterday when I first opened the account. How time flies...
Anyway, just a short post really. Amanda sent me some really positive feedback about my 'Youths' play so far. I asked her for her thoughts on what should happen in my play - I have enough character stuff to keep it ticking over but I want something to happen to bring all of them together at the end - and Amanda couldn't think of anything. I would like something that's not really life altering, something simple and relatively small in the grand scheme of things but something that will impact their lives and also show how futile and mundane their existances are. Current ideas include breaking a shop window and losing something (eg cash or a family possession).
How you can help
If anyone out there has any funny/poignant/stupid stories about stuff you or your mates, etc got up to when you were thirteen-fifteen years old, then please post them in the comments section. I'm not going to nick all of it, honest, but I thought a bit of research might do the play a bit of good!
I think, as usual, I need to sit down and think this one through. Finding time though is a bit difficult at the moment as it is coming up to my show, and they keep adding in extra rehearsals. My next evening off is Thursday, so will have a crack at it then.
