Today we’re going to write on spec….
We were supposed to pick a venue that we loved and write a play for that venue. So I chose the Globe, and quickly realised that even if I had longer than a day, I couldn’t write a Shakespeare plays (being Shakespeare is a sort of prerequisite for that…)
So I decided to write a piece to go on the Globe stage, make full use of the wooden O, the groundlings, the magnetude of it all…
I sat at my laptop and repeated “Write on spec. Write on spec. Write on speck. Right on speck….”
next thing I knew, I was writing a scene on a speck of dust. Kind of gutted that I didn’t get to write for the Globe… another day…!!
