Baxter Theatre Writing Project

Six writers in search of a play

The Director of the Baxter Theatre Centre, Lara Foot, invited me to head up a challenging project: to work with 5 other writers in producing the same play.  I've never done this before, nor participated in the kind of writing team that writers for television soapies engage in, so this is both exciting and intimidating.  I'm delighted though to be working the talents of Tankiso Mamabolo, Wessel Pretorius, Tiisetso Mashifane, Qondiswa James and Malika Ndlovu in this project.  We had our first meeting on Monday 1 June, and have set August as our deadline for the project!
