I’m not usually one to use several exclamation marks; but I’m very excited today because The Female Gaze play just got funding to run an R+D week in July!! A big thank you to Chloe Stott our producer!!
The week will be focused on developing the script of the play, and will include public workshops on women and film, as well as a sharing of the work in progress at the end of the week. Watch this space for a confirmation of dates and to book.
The play will consist of a narrative written by me, and the following monologues:
Dorothy Arzner by Anna Novitzky
Louise Beavers ‘A Mammy of All Work” by Milethia Thomas
Sewing Circles: A Monologue About Jean Acker by Zoe Murtagh
A Brutal Ending (about Lorenza Mazzetti) by Ruby Lawrence
Jane Arden Monologue by Eleni Zezas
Vivien Leigh by Mhairi Ledgerwood
When Agnes Varda Came for Tea by Jayne Morley
Hattie McDaniel by Beverly Andrews
Margaret Tait by Carys Crossen
Jane ‘too black to be’ White by Ailish Fowler
Thelma Schoonmaker by Diane McInerney
Mapping the Terrain- After Maya Deren by Sarah Featherstone
Now I’m off to celebrate, and then get going doing more research and some writing!
