Save the Oxfordshire Drama Wardrobe!

Well, look who's been on regional television in the UK! :D

The STC rehearsing for "Comedy of Errors" using the costumes

The Studio Theatre Club were on BBC News Oxford last Friday - didn't see it myself, of course, being a Midlander, but the video clip is available to watch on the BBC website for anyone who's interested (might be region-encoded for people outside the UK - not sure...):


The reason for their appearing on television was to help highlight the plight of the Oxfordshire Drama Wardrobe, which is a charity that provides costumes for drama groups in Oxfordshire. Unfortunately the charity is in debt by about £14000 and faces closure. Hopefully the news article will help publicise the issue and bring about action to help save this drama resource.

Also, if anyone wants to stalk ...I mean, follow Stephen, he's finally joined us on Twitter: @StephenPBriggs :)

Studio Theatre Club Plays
by Grace Francis (jurious)
at May 19th, 2011 (05:10 pm)

current location: New Balderton, Newark, UK
current mood: bouncy

I saw Stephen on Saturday after "The Man Who Was Thursday" and had a chat with him. (My friend, who came with me to see the play, estimated him to be lots younger than he is, so I told him and much LOLz has since ensued... Heheh.) Terry Pratchett went to the play, too, which was cool. He seemed a bit lost at not being mobbed, for once - must be nice to be anonymous sometimes! It was a very good play and it's a shame it wasn't as well attended as the last one - it was very funny and entertaining (and confusing!), but well played by all and pretty faithful to the book.

Anyway, the Studio Theatre Club's next play will be Agatha Christie's "THE HOLLOW" - a good ol' murder mystery! Should be fun. It will run from 17th to 20th August 2011 and starts at 7:30pm @ the Unicorn Theatre, Thames St, Abingdon. Tickets will be £8.

Just thought I'd mention that Stephen's not 100% sure that "Snuff" will happen because he needs to see more recent drafts of the book before he can say for sure that it's stageable. At present it is but he needs to see more of the text, first. We'll have to wait and see. The STC's website still states that "Snuff" will play February 22nd to 25th, so keep your eyes on that.

I will hopefully have some sketches drawn soon based on the last play. Don't have much reference material but it shouldn't be hard to throw a few simple ones together. :)

STC: The Man Who Was Thursday
by Grace Francis (jurious)
at April 24th, 2011 (05:03 pm)

I'm doing my best to pimp this play even though I've only managed to persuade the same friend who came with me to the last Studio Theatre Club play (which was "A Midsummer Night's Dream") to come again for this one. :) (She loved the last one! I loved the last one! Come on! Join us!)


Based on the book by G K Chesterton - Adapted by Brian Macken

Adapted from GK Chesterton's novel, it tells the story of poet Gabriel Syme, who finds revolution revolting and, after becoming an undercover detective, infiltrates a Europe-wide secret organisation dedicated to the overthrow of society. The seven-strong ruling council take their names from the days of the week; Syme is elected to the group as Thursday.

Attempting to foil their dastardly plans, Syme sets out on a journey during which it becomes apparent that, like him, his fellow anarchists are not always what they appear. But the question that looms largest is the identity of the elusive, terrifying Sunday.

Runs 11 to 14 MAY 2011 - 7:30pm at the Unicorn Theatre in Abingdon

Tickets are £8 and available now from tickets@studiotheatreclub.com or by calling (01865) 778105. See http://www.studiotheatreclub.com/ for further information.

Stephen told me a while back he's playing Sunday which, if the book is anything to by, will be a crazy-fun part to see him play. (The book's worth a read if you've got time to squeeze that in.) I'm eager to see how the book's been adapted for the stage. It should be really entertaining. Go get a ticket and - if you're going Saturday night - I'll hopefully see you there.

*Also, FYI, dates for the next Discworld play "Snuff" have been moved back to February 2012. According to the STC website, tickets will be on sale from October 10th 2011.

Call To Crossing!

My dear dark_clerks and stephen_briggs Appreciators,

Stephen Briggs has asked if we can all keep our fingers crossed.
He's hoping (as I imagine we all do), that he will at some point be cast as Lord Vetinari for a DW film/TV production.

My request is that you all keep your fingers crossed at all times. Get an extra pair of hands if you have to!

Yours &c.,
