SCRATCH #2 Emerging Female Writers
Three script-in-hand sharings of new work from emerging female writers:
Rabbit Catcher by Rebecca Martin
Directed by Ewan Donald
Ren lays in the dirt. Her heart hammers against her chest. She lies there bleeding and confused. Will tells her he loves her. She is lost in the woods and must get out.
Family Unit by Julie Tsang
Directed by Barrie Hunter
An extract from a new play exploring what it means for the future of young people in a society with its own punitive laws.
Strangers by Kolbrun Sigfusdottir
Directed by Jordan Blackwood
Boy meets girl. Boy texts girl. Girl likes it. Girl likes it too much. But reality and fantasy are very different.
A History of Paper by Oliver Emanuel & Gareth Williams
It starts when she puts a rude note through his letterbox. Hello Number 4, this is Number 6. Please could you shut the **** up? Ta. He posts an apology and – because he loves paper – an origami rose. She is delighted. They meet, fall in love and get married.
Then one day a letter arrives that will change them, and the world, forever…
A musical love story about a man and a woman and the little bits of paper that can mean so much.
Belleville Rendezvous (a work in progress) - Blood Of The Young
Directed by Paul Brotherston
National Theatre of Scotland company-in-residence Blood of the Young (Pride and Prejudice* (*sort of), Daphne Oram’s Wonderful World of Sound) come to play with a modern classic of French cinema.
Blood of the Young’s take on this rip-roaring adventure story - full of bikes, gangsters, dogs, and one kick-ass Granny – comes with a live soundtrack of French pop covers as well as the company’s usual blend of irreverent comedy, dynamic physicality, and inventive staging.
