Write on Time (1976)
three writers were commissioned to write a play each for Prompt Corner lasting between 30 mintues and one hour. Scripts had to be completed within four weeks.
The object was for the authors to write a play and have it performed - all to a deadline. Problems which arose in the course of rehearsals could be worked out with the actors and directors so helping them to a better understanding of the craft of playwriting.
It is basically a Writer's Workshop but no indulgence is expected of the audience on that account.
- The Education of the Fifth Person
It is left to the individual imagination to decide if, in the pursit of one's ideal, the achievement warrants the search.
Entering into conversation is one way of making contact - or is it? "Have you got a problem?" says one. Well, has he?
- The Pursuit of the Whole
A progressive school where sex is the main subject and progress is rapid and all-embracing. This was repeated the Rhoda McGaw Theatre in a festival promoted by the Woking Drama Association from who's programme these details were taken.
