Monday May 23rd brings us a ninety minute stageplay called Eromenos by Nick Cheesman. It's had a rehearsed reading before, so it's probably even better than it was a year ago. I have since read it, and liked it a lot. Three interesting, vulnerable characters, neatly plotted, and good, pithy dialogue. Here's the gen:

"Fast approaching her 30th birthday Sheri decides to turn her life around down at the gym. Eromenos ignites the obsession modern society has about people and body size".

Monday May 16th brings us the above titled stageplay by David Crook. What do the *s mean? Well you can make up your own minds. This is a family blog.

"What is the psychology behind recurring cycles of boom and bust in financial markets? What sucks people in and what are the human costs? A former charity worker with ideals becomes an aggressive hedge fund manager. The drama charts damage and disruption to those around him. Painful choices are made on a roller coaster ride through the market meltdown from 2000 up to the 2016 bubble driven by property prices. A lucid and comprehensible insight into the high stakes world of hedge fund speculators from the pen of an industry insider - and a highly successful one at that".

Dreamboats and Petticoats - The TV series

Having welcomed so many new faces to Player Playwrights this year we felt let's throw a bit of a party for all members, actors, writers, audience and guests to meet and mingle after a reading of a new TV script by PP presidents Marks and Gran. BAFTA winning, "Living Legends" bring us the first episode of their newly penned TV adaptation of their hit show "Dreamboats and Petticoats". Songs and all! It'll be a great night. Come one come all.
