Mark James is a powerhouse of an actor and playwright and we’re very proud to be publishing his inaugural play, Dear Mother.
Incidentally and just as an aside, if you read our note yesterday about Rob Windsor’s latest post, you might be interested to know that Mark has played the lead role in many of Rob’s Facing Tides Theatre productions, including Off Her Facebook!
Anyway, there is clearly an element of literary glitter in the air this week, as both of our talented playwrights have knocked out stupendous postings on their websites.
Mark site can be found at MarkJamesPlays.co.uk and he has just penned a piece filled to the gills with advice for anyone thinking about putting on a performance of Dear Mother. However, even if you’re not considering doing so, it does offer a wonderful insight to the mind of a creative writer as he imparts top tips on how to put visual polish onto a performance.
Well worth a read!
