Writer’s Block takes you into the mind of two struggling playwrights, unsure of where to begin their next great play. Join them on a captivating journey as they venture through various genres and themes in search of a story that will define their legacy.

After our crazy circus murder mystery last year I was keen to give the students a different challenge. This play travels through many different styles and genres. It contains a mix of comedy as well as pathos and so presents a lot of challenges for the young actors. I decided to double cast due to their being 5/6 characters per scene, so everyone was able to have a fair opportunity to play decent roles.

The group has jumped onto this challenge with great energy and attack. We have varying levels of experience in the group but all have focused superbly and worked hard throughout rehearsal. It has been quite a challenge jumping from style to character in different scenes but I can see how much they’ve learned and developed in a short time and I am very proud of the work they have done.

I really hope they have enjoyed the challenge and that you enjoy watching their work come to life.

Enjoy the show!
