These promo photos for "Eulalie and the Great March," by Flora Stohr-Danziger, were taken by Duncan McAllister.
I am directing the Saturday 'Experiment,' part of the New Ideas Festival 2007. For more information about my show on March 10, or on the other shows in this three week series, go to the website: New Ideas. You will find links to photos from all of the shows as well as ticket information.
New Ideas is a venue for new plays of all kinds. There is a mix of humour and drama. If you are a playwright, talented in penning short works, you might want to submit a script next year.
The Saturday experiment is unique, a staged reading done expressly for the purpose of inviting audience feedback. Our reading is not a static reading of lines but it is experimental. The artistic producers asked us to put on "Eulalie and the Great March" twice: once in monologue form as it was originally written, and once in dialogue form. Flora Stohr-Danziger did the rewrite and we consulted (and ate some lovely lunches together) before she left for South Africa.
