Scripts

I’ve always had an interest in script writing, be it for film, television or the stage. My interest is great, but my experience is minimal!

In June 2000, I completed an RMIT short course, Screenwriting – Introduction, taught by Dr Lisa Dethridge.

Below is some information on scripts I have written that have actually progressed somewhere beyond my own computer. I have written others that are gathering metaphoric dust on my hard-drive.

Stage

Happily Ever After

This is a short play of about 10 minutes. It’s a drama about infertility and the desire for children.

It was originally written as an entry into the Short & Sweet Festival. It was short listed for the 2005 Melbourne Short & Sweet Festival. Unfortunately it didn’t make the final cut.

It has since had a re-write and was accepted for Cabaret Voltair’s Short Shorts season. It was performed in November 2008 at the Australian Centre Of Performing Arts as part of a set of short plays and monologues directed by Rhyannon Grace, called Moment In Time.

Facilitation

This is a short play of about 10 minutes. It’s a drama about life and death and regret… and it’s rather hard to describe.

It was originally written as an entry into the Short & Sweet Festival. It was short listed for the 2006 Melbourne Short & Sweet Festival. Unfortunately it didn’t make the final cut.

Film

Soon

This is a short film script. It’s a one-character, grave-side monologue that runs to about 3 minutes. Produced by Gary Hegedus Productions it was shot in June 2007. In addition to writing the script, I also acted in the film.
