Dirty Protest's next even will be a night of plays inspired by Super Furry Animals songs.
We're appealing for mini-playlets.
If you can write a short play inspired by a SFA song, - no more than 5 lines long, there's a chance we'll stage it at our next event at the Milgi Warehouse as part of the SWN festival.
The shorter the more likely we'll stage it!
If you can tell a story inspired by a SFA song in 2 lines - we'll almost certainly use it.

If anyone's in London on the 21st or 25th, pop along to the Tristan Bates theatre in Covent Garden to come see a play I've devised with Polly Findlay, Tom Andews and Exquisite Corpse star Alex Beckett. It's part of their annual Ignition programme, other writers involved include Jack Thorne and Che Walker.

I'm in New York at the moment and will be until June. Has anyone got any tips for theatre companies/shows to dig out? I know John mentioned Forum theatre in another blog, I'm going to try and see if they've got anything on. Anyone else????
Also, could Tom and Carl fix it so that if anyone ever starts a blog with 'So' that they get swine flu in their fingers? Thanks.
