It’s up! A video of the production of my short play WHO’S ANDY WARHOL?, which was performed at the Lost Theatre in Wandsworth, London on October 24th. This is one of the 10 winning plays from the British Theatre Challenge. the International New Writing Competition by the Sky Blue Theatre Company of Cambridge, England.
WHO’S ANDY WARHOL? portrays a medical crisis which redefines the relationship between two lovers when one contracts transient global amnesia.
I am very happy with the production, especially the actors Chris Towner-Jones as Matt, and Lizzie Stanton as Sarah. What a joy it is to watch my words come to life! I hope that you enjoy this piece produced by Mini Mammoth Films. This is the first of the winning plays to be posted on youtube.
Special thanks to Anne Bartram of Sky Blue, and Rah Petherbridge, the UK-based photographer who took these wonderful stills below.
If you would like to read the play, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you for watching!
