Avalon Mentorship 2012


Not content with the amount of psychical plant physiology that the theatre has to offer, I’ve been developing a script about a scientist obsessed with ESP in plants. Edinburgh-based theatre production company Siege Perilous liked this work-in-progress enough to offer me a place on the Avalon Mentorship this month with my play, entitled ‘The Dracaena Assembly’. The mentorship comprises a six-month development programme for six emerging Scottish playwrights, with the possibility of up to three of the plays being offered full-scale productions. 

So I’m on the verge of developing my first script for the stage with them and their writer-in-residence, Caroline Dunford. All very exciting. Will keep you posted, primarily with bracingly informative tweets.
