  • Southwest Scriptwriters meeting
    Starts: 8:00 pm
    Ends: 10:00 pm

    Location: Bristol Old Vic, King St, Bristol BS1 4ED, UK


    Description:

    Our Open Workshop session in Bristol Old Vic's Rehearsal Room includes work by Drew Holt, Alexandra Randall and Brian Weaving.

    Drew’s TV script, Clocked, centres on two directionless twenty-something graduates who meet by chance on a bench. After sharing confidences, they decide to work together to help resolve their respective woes — one, monetary, the other, mental. They soon realise that most people are as aimless as them.

    We’re also concluding our reading of Alex’s screenplay, Assent, following a positive reception for the first part at December’s meeting. The drama centres on a married man with undiagnosed ephebophilia — sexual attraction to adolescents.

    Brian has one of his popular 500-word scripts as a terse complement for tonight’s triptych.
