Where could you put on a play in the Marches? There used to be a Drama Festival for writers at The Courtyard Hereford but not I understand. Is there anywhere else?

Hi Mick I replied to your comment but I'm not sure if it got through! Thanks for your lovely comments, very much appreciated.

Hi Mick, Thank you for going to see the show and for taking the time to send a message. I'm delighted that you enjoyed it.

The play has been published but its a bit complicated! The Parallel Lines that has been published is from the original production - we produced it a couple of years ago - and it was part of Methuens 'Contemporary Welsh Plays' anthology. It has recently been published, again by Methuen but as a stand alone play - again it is the original version. So the rewritten Parallel Lines you saw hasn't been published - sort of - Clear as mud! 

Once again, thank you for your comments, they are much appreciated by all of the Parallel Lines team.

I am a Newport Film student currently producing my second year experimental film. I have posted a discussion on the actors group for an open casting and the Director and I have also been looking through the group for actors who fit the brief.
We are please to inform you that we are interested in you for one of the parts and would like to invite you to a casting this Friday at 5pm in the Newport University city campus NP20 2BP. If you are unavailable for this please let me know as we are aware this isn't much notice and so might possibly be holding another casting next week for those who can't make it. The brief is as follows:
The first brief is for a troubled Young Man having to care for his dying father, He is angry and confused about his father's bizarre, fatalistic behaviour and is, at first, not able to understand what his father is trying to tell him. He numbs himself through his obsession with horror films and alcohol and drug use. He is frightened and has no idea how to deal with what's happening to his dad, with whom he has never been able to communicate.
The second brief is for an Older Man who is suffering with pain, fear and hallucinations related to his oncoming death. He is trying to tell his son that he knows he will die soon and that there is nothing he can do about it but does so in an obtuse, confrontational way involving childish behaviour and too close-to-the-bone humour.
There is a pivotal scene where the 2 come to an understanding after a sort-of fight whilst the father is in the bath but refusing to co-operate. This will be quite physically demanding and require nudity from the Older Man.
Given that this is a student project, unfortunately we are able to pay expenses only but food will be provided on set everyday. It's a 3 day shoot from the 16-18th of November. Although this may be subject to change.
Please contact us if you have any questions. Also if you are able to attend the casting could you provide us with an email so that I can send you a copy of the script.
Many thanks,
Mia Sands

Hi Mick,

I'm afraid I'll be up in Prestatyn but I'll be At the paines plough event on Thursday evening. Will you? If not, don't worry, I'll get it to you somehow, I promise!

Best of the luck with the production. I had a look at what I wrote last year. It's always with a bit of trepidation looking back. A few clunky sentences apart it wasn't bad.I had forgotten the autobiography I had put in, but you can't see anything & avoid the filters of experience. Which part of the Borders are you in? I walked around 4 miles of Offa's Dyke last year and had as a 2010 resolution it would be good for the spirit to walk some more.
