Frankie Fightwell Preliminary Draft Complete

Last night I finished the preliminary draft of my new play, ‘The Final Adventure of Frankie Fightwell’. There’s a play there now, I just need to make sure it all makes sense! I have a little over a month until the working first draft deadline, so hopefully that’s more than enough time to complete the editing. To be honest I find the editing enjoyable; it’s getting all your thoughts down on paper and ordered into the initial structure that’s the tricky bit.

“The Final Adventure of Frankie Fightwell” Audio Recording

Today I was pleasantly surprised to discover the audio recording of “The Final Adventure of Frankie Fightwell” preview performed at the Blackshaw New Writing Showcase is featured in the latest Blackshaw Arts Hour podcast.

Episode 57 of the podcast can be found here, with Frankie Fightwell starting 26 minutes in. Having said that, the preceding review of “Fifty Shades Darker” is definitely worth a listen too.

“Frankie Fightwell” at Blackshaw New Writing Showcase

On Monday night I attended the Blackshaw Theatre New Writing Showcase at the Hen & Chicken Theatre. Amongst other pieces, the opening scene of my new theatrical work-in-progress, The Final Adventure of Frankie Fightwell, was performed as part of the showcase.

Blackshaw New Writing Events always have an amazing atmosphere, and it was great to see the characters come to life for the first time. The actors and director did an amazing job with my script and I can’t thank them enough for volunteering their time and the effort that they put in.

I was very pleased with the audience reaction on the night – now I just have to wait to receive their written feedback in a few days! And then? Well, on with (writing) the show!
