Postcards Part 2
October 28 @ 7:30 pm – 9:30 pm
An evening of short plays inspired by real holiday postcards
Our second ‘scratch night’ of the year is a highly entertaining collection of original short pieces, both comic and dramatic, inspired by real-life holiday postcards and written by members of our two scriptwriting workshops. Our first Postcards night was a collaboration with Pen to Print in Barking and was staged over two nights at Barking Broadway Theatre and the Sydenham Centre in 2019.
Presented ‘script in hand’ by our professional cast, with minimal scenery and props, expect a diverse range of subjects and styles – from the surreal to the farcical, from the romantic to the downright dark.
Producer/co-director Jonathan Kaufman says, ‘We love our scratch nights, and so do our audiences – like a box of chocolates, you never know what you’re going to get! And the cast loves performing them, too, with minimal rehearsal and no need to learn their lines. It’s always an adrenaline rush to put these plays on the stage, and the writers’ feedback is immensely rewarding.
At the end of the evening, we will be inviting the audience to vote for their favourite playlets, with the winning playwright receiving a small prize. Please note that these evenings are often very popular, so advance booking is highly recommended.
The performance lasts approx 2 hrs inc interval.
Please note this performance is not suitable for children
