Play Post Mortem

So, the final curtain has fallen and the set has all been put away, and that’s it for the first ever run of Lost & Found. We had a very good run of it, attracting nearly 150 people over the three nights, which is really great for such a small scale production. All the feedback I’ve had has been outright positive (some even described the play as fantastic) and I spent a lot of time after the performances feeling overwhelmed by praise and not quite knowing what to do with it. I’d like to add one final huge thank you to everyone who made the play possible and especially to my amazing cast and crew who worked so hard to make Lost & Found the success it was.

So, what now?

Well, I don’t know. Firstly, I’m wanting to take a few days off from writing anything at all, just long enough to let the dust settle and draw breath. Lost & Found has occupied a massive space in my head over the last month and a bit, so I need a bit of time to let that out. Secondly, I’ve got a massive amount of marking to do and e-mails to answer which I ignored all of last week (sorry if you’ve been waiting!). But after that, well, watch this space. I’ve got the first scene of a sequel to Lost & Found written out of ideas suggested by the cast during improvisation exercises, and I would like to continue with that. I’m still writing the fantasy novel, and I need to get back into that. And, of course, there’s all sorts of other projects that I’ve got on the go. So, really, what’s next is to keep writing and see if I can’t come up with something as exciting as Lost & Found, and something that people enjoy as much as they enjoyed my first play.
