Writers Block – 18-26 October, 2019

about the show

The “Brick Wall” is every writer’s enemy but Jane has discovered a way to make hitting it a little less tedious. Battling with wildly vocal and immensely frustrating hallucinations in the form of her two main characters, Jane sets about to write a play with all the romance and drama she lacks in her own life.

With a crush on her imaginary leading man, an unexplained dislike of her fictional leading lady, a very real romance budding with a divorced ‘boy next door’ and an inability to separate reality from fiction, Jane furiously pecks out her newest play: a drama about a young wounded British Soldier seeking refuge with a German girl in the midst of WWII.

Set against a 1940’s and modern backdrop, Writer’s Block is a comical romance with a hint of drama that voices some of the unique processes occurring in a writers head as she arduously pieces together the scattered thoughts of her over-active imagination
to ultimately produce that perfect work of art… she hopes.
