New Archaic Theatre's first ever production of my play "Citizen Goom" will be coming to the Epsom Playhouse in Surrey this september.

This will be my first proffessional production, so incredibly nervous but very much looking forward to it.

Citizen Goom - Saviour of the Universe

Catholic Priest, Father Sonny, is having a bad day; but it's not the end of the world, right?
If only

The end of the world is 3000 feet back up that way, and Father Sonny has fallen off the edge of it.

And as if he didn't have enough problems, he must now contend with the enigmatic and seemingly unperturbed Citizen Goom, who apparently does this sort of thing all the time.

It falls upon Father Sonny to put an end to this nonsense, prove the earth is round and get the universe behaving like a sensible reality, but he is slipping, and the peanuts are running out...
The end is nigh, and it could go either way.



The show will be 13th - 15th and starring yours truly.

You can catch a glimpse at our poster etc on the website, and hopefully a few pictures as and when they materialise.

Congratulations, friend.  I loved this script when I first read it and it's great to hear you're getting it on stage.  Best of luck to the production, I wish I could see it go up.

lostsocks...or should I say foundsocks!

Congratulations!

I hope you will go back and read your own posts under "selling oneself" in the thread "Synopsis and Cover Letters" and have a good chuckle! It would be good for everyone to read to see the honesty in which you expressed your thoughts and feelings at the time.

And now...again...with the most hearfelt of redundancies...Congratulations!

This is just a treat to hear!

best,

in media res!

Break a leg!  And may your priest have a bad day for many, many opening nights to follow. :)

Thanks for the support folks - and good to see you back Edd :)

The play went very well, small-ish audiences, but they all laughed quite loudly which made up for it and we achieved our coveted goal of getting some people we didn't actually know to turn up.

The company has just about broken even, or not lost very much, so hopefully we'll be looking at taking it to a few drama festivals in the future.
