Dragons in the News
Quite a lot of Dragons news recently, and I’m not sure I’ve blogged about it.
First of all, the dates; it’s on at the Bierkeller Theatre in Bristol from 22nd-24th May.
Then, in a move I can only describe as “pretty bloody exciting”, it can be seen at The Dell in Stratford-Upon-Avon on 24th June.
Finally, several scenes will be performed at the Sherman Theatre Cymru in Cardiff on 6th July.
Whilst all of those are brilliant in and of themselves, it’s a testament to the quality of the production that it’s been selected to be performed in Shakespeare’s backyard. Well, I’m sure the script was half-decent too, but anyway…
Finally, and fittingly considering the heading of this blog, local press has picked up on Dragons, and given me what I believe is my first “official” mention as a writer. In fact, I will now be signing all my letters as “television writer David Heslop”. So if you want to read all about it, point your browser this-a-way: http://www.bedminsterpeople.co.uk/St-Paul-s-Players-takes-Dragons-RSC-Stratford/story-15955966-detail/story.html
All in all, I’m over the moon with how much publicity Kirsty Hemming’s production is getting. I’m especially excited as I haven’t seen it yet! But clearly the extent of its support bodes well. Personally, I’m chuffed to bits, very proud of all those in St Paul’s Players Bristol, and very much looking forward to catching it myself at the end of the month.
