The future

Now PROOF is half way through its run, I find myself stretching my mind towards the future. We have several shows ahead this year - GEORGE'S MARVELLOUS MEDICINE in Scotland, OTHELLO in Birmingham and TREASURE ISLAND on tour. We are also working on HORRIBLE SCIENCE as the next step in producing our HORRIBLE shows.

I don't know where the next new play will come from - we have been producing a new play each year since 1999. Most writers will obviously send their plays to the Royal Court, Soho Theatre or the National before they send them to us, so we have to be lucky to find that next great new play, although to be fair, I've been sent a few plays before they're produced elsewhere - notably Rebecca Lenkiewicz's The Night Season which went to the National, a gorgeous new play which just didn't have a resonance for me personally. So far we have been lucky and found the most wonderful new plays to produce - who knows what will happen as this year unfolds.

Dear Neal

Could you bear to read my play? People have found it quite amusing.

Wow Othello!!! thats brilliant!

I adore Othello! i would cut off my right leg to play Iago one day. But i think standing at 6'5'' tall, and built like a brick shit house, i am too big! i would probably dwarf othello:( alas! ... Oh well I can dream!

speaking of cutting off legs, treasure island... One of my childhood favourites! this could be amazing!

Will you be casting soon? I checked with the office last november and they said to send my details in mid 2007, should i act now or wait a little longer?

thanking you for your time
