A short play...The Golden Hour

My partner Andrew Bridgmont is  putting on a play and I would like to sound it out here on the blog. This is the way that theatre practitioners in the industry go about getting their own work a platform, it may be an initial foot-hold before something like The Edinburgh Fringe Festival. He is a fantastic writer (and director), and has been an actor in the industry for 30 years and produced a number of other plays in the past...

To quote Andrew: "I came to the table with an idea based on a short story I had written and we began to talk about ways of bringing it to life in dramatic form. I would go away and come back with a rough draft. The actors would read it and then we would all discuss what seemed to be working and what needed to be looked at. We repeated this process. Three months and numerous drafts later we arrived at this slender 25 minute two-hander. Its next test is in front of an audience".

The play...
Lizzie has just murdered her pimp with a bottle of Moet champagne. Before facing the music she sets out to meet her final client, Frank.  Although it appears that his only interests are tea and the Foxtrot, Frank proves to be more than Lizzie ever thought possible. She is faced with a decision.                                                                                                

This 45 minute two-hander is a funny, erotic and ultimately moving portrait of a woman’s unconventional response to love, sex and ‘50’s Britain.
