Friday evening at StageWrite was an absolute blast. We kicked off with Jon Bousted’s superb black comedy, ‘Philadelphia’, and this was followed by the first piece of comedy that Phil has ever written, ‘Giving Up’. Both pieces were really well received and I think the writers were suitably encouraged and inspired by the audience response. It’s been such a good week so far…can’t quite believe it’s almost over. However – still two more pieces on offer this evening: ‘Olympilads’ by Andy Maddock (who also wrote for us last year and is quite frankly brilliant), and ‘Fat Chance’ by Nick Huntington – having read these scripts I can’t wait to see them in performance.
