Playing around!

I have decided to make 2 of my ten-minute plays into One Acts. I think I am finished one and the other is coming along rather slowly. an extra 25 to 35 minutes of dialogue is rather taxing. When it flows it is very uplifting but figuring out how to prolong the tension, add complications or obstructions, keep the humour going etc. is harder than one might think.

One is a comedy – I find humour a difficult genre. How do I know that what I find funny is good enough for the page. After all, I am a little warped. The other is a drama, which if pushed too far risks becoming a cheesy comedy. Sigh! I don’t want anyone to laugh while watching this. It’s supposed to be dark.

On a brighter note, I think, I have posted an excerpt from RIP on face book. Have a look and let me know what you think. Thanks. ‘Later, Rosa.
