INTRODUCTION The challenge was to the authors we have already published to turn one of their short stories into a ten minute script. And here they all are. We looked for:
- Effective adaptation of the origin text
- Ease of production
- Something that could be Covid safe
Here’s what we said about them:
The overall winner
This has to be Tony Domaille, Star Gazing. Tony’s script has the best balance of everything:
Superb adaptation of short story script
Ease of production
Margaret Bulleyment: Green Grass of Home
An effective adaptation of an already effective story. This would also be easy to stage.
Linda Flynn: Unseen Eyes I
Immersive Theatre An innovative piece and an innovative presentation in dramatic form. Covid-safe certainly.
Janet Howson: Cinderella’s
Ex-drama teacher Janet has a good eye for the dramatic and much of this was already there in the original story. This is a skilful adaptation.
Dawn Knox: The Stag Do
This is a competent adaptation of an already quirky and much-loved story.
Neta Shlain: Total Loss
A very detailed and innovative adaptation of a short story that has already gained a lot of attention.
Dianne Stadhams: Sheep be Damned
An effective dramatic monologue (mainly) and with ease of production, possibly as a film or a “stage” production.
