Thanks katoagogo!

I might just do that! I dont know if you know much about Gibraltar but we are Bi-lingual in both English and Spanish. there is also a local dialect, which is a mish-mash of both langages,we call it "llanito" (Pronounced yanito). My association have been looking to do a play in "llanito" and this might be the one! Thanks for that!

I hope you wont mind me bouncing a few ideas off you in the future!

For my STAR WARS STORIES project that I created with a group of high school kids - I set up a group on Facebook where people could post their stories about seeing Star Wars the first time.  From the stories and another collective writing project called THE PRINCESS LEIA DIARIES we collected a lot of material that eventually became the show.

The STAR WARS STORIES themselves were performed at music stands and read verbatim - like poetry.  We also had other bits spread throughout - a few sketches written by the kids - and a few borrowed sources like words from Return of the Jedi and portions of  couple of famous essays.

It turned into a fun evening of theater.  You could do something similar.

Here's a link to a story about the show:

And here's a link to the STAR WARS STORIES group on FB (if you wanted to see how it worked):

Another thing to consider is that the film was based on a true story.  While the film belongs to studio - it is a fictionalized account of the actual story.  You may be able to construct a performance piece by collecting the original news sources.  Or construct a piece ala Vagina Monologues or Laramie Project - a documentary type of theater.

Hi,

I have been asked to produce/direct a play for the local women's cancer support group. They would like to do the film/play Calender Girls!

My group is researching into getting the rights, but I would like to know if there is anyone out there with a "Similar" play that has a large female cast that would be willing for it to be considered for production in Gibraltar?

Thanks in advance,

Trev N
