F…Access All Areas

Posted on July 7, 2011

So now I am going to try and deepen the whole theatre experience of my Website by dedicating sub pages to individual plays. Who know’s, this might even help me remember when I did what, where and with whom.

Initial stage directions:
THE SHOW BEGINS IN BLACKOUT.
LOUD OPENING MUSIC FROM BEGINNING OF KING CRIMSON’S “21ST CENTURY SCHIZOID MAN”. LIGHTS FADE UP ON FRANKLIN (HEREAFTER FRANK) WHO IS POISED OVER A COMPUTER KEYBOARD. HE IS SITTING ON AN OFFICE CHAIR, AND DRINKS FROM AN OPEN CAN OF BEER. IT IS A MINIMALIST SET WHICH HAPPILY CONTAINS A FRIDGE FOR THE BEER. THE LIGHTING IS WARM AND INTIMATE. IT SHOULD HAVE A LATE NIGHT FEEL TO IT. HE IS CONCENTRATING ON THE MONITOR, WHICH IS OSTENSIBLY THE SHOW RELAY OF THE PLAY FOR WHICH FRANK IS OPERATING THE LIGHTS.
HE SLOWLY, DELIBERATELY, PRESSES A KEY. TURNS TO THE AUDIENCE AND GRINS.
HE BEGINS TO SPEAK, AND CARRIES ON FOR AS LONG AS THE AUDIENCE WILL LET HIM.
