I've been having the best time developing a show called OVERHEARD with a brilliant team of eleven (!) actors. All the text is verbatim conversations that have been recorded out and about in London and brought to life once again. Below is the blurb and I'm so excited to share this scratch with the public. Think it's one of the most exciting things I've ever done.
oin us for our first ever scratch of a “new writing” night with a twist: everything you hear has been overheard. We’ve been recording conversations while we go about our daily lives – not your private whisperings, but when it’s impossible not to listen. Your Dom Joly style phone calls or overly loud discussions on an otherwise silent tube – you know the type.
We take those words verbatim, make them anonymous, add some theatricality, and present you with the conversations and characters of London in all their glory. Come and (re)witness the weird and wonderful things people say when they’re out and about.
Truth is stranger than fiction.
