Writing news in 2021Read Now
Absolutely no one needs reminding what a rubbish year this has been work-wise for creatives.
However, our Managing Director (and one of our writers), Rachel O'Neill, had some encouraging successes in the past year. She was Runner-Up Best Original Monologue for The Studio, Salisbury Monologue Competition (and final five for best performance, about 4 mins in) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RgBb6DI6-3Y (trigger warning: implied violence), 'Sir Walter's Women' was performed by The South Devon Players Theatre & Film Company, Brixham in November.
Rachel's original audio drama made the final five of the RAF Benevolent Fund's competition with 'Eager for the Air', based on the founding of the all-female branch of the ATA, and her 10-minute piece 'Kit-Kats and Cider' was read by the Writing Doesn't Have To Be Lonely team.
She has been invited to be part of Theatre Royal Winchester's new writing group, and was a Finalist in the recent monologue competition for Green Curtain Theatre with 'Oona' which will be filmed later this year.
