Francesca is verbally challenged6th October 2009 by Martin Gibbons
Francesca Waite has taken a step into the relatively unknown for her by writing her first solo script to be debuted tomorrow night (Wednesday 7 October 2009) at The Contact, Manchester. The play is for Verbally Challenged, the Contact’s monthly script-writing competition. Five writers are invited to follow a brief to come up with a ten minute piece of writing which is then turned into a performance piece in the studio space by a team of professional actors and a professional Director. The audience then vote for their favourite piece on the night and the winner receives £100 cash prize.
This month’s brief was: Write a ten minute script of a story spanning 10 years. Within the piece you must incorporate all of the five senses; sight, hearing, touch, smell and taste which the audience will directly respond to.
