Made From Scratch Theatre Company say that they "really want to help promote new writers in London. If that's you, regardless of experience we want to know..."  They also have a fan page on Facebook - check it out if you're thinking of submitting.
Suggestions for all sorts of love stories
  • Forbidden love (please see novel on right.  please buy novel on right. please go to a library and borrow novel on right. please...you get the idea...)
  • Love with the other - Beauty and the Beast....Lady into Fox by David Garnett (I recently set a two hour class around this book....and I fell in love with the work that came out of it)
  • Tragic love - the lovers die: Romeo & Juliet, The English Patient.....
  • Tragic love - one lover dies: Titanic, Love Story, PS I Love You...Goodbye Mr Chips...there must be heaps more...
  • Happy love stories....Breakfast at Tiffany's (fillm not the book which has a very different ending) Goodbye Mr Chips...completely dried up....
Suggestions for an exciting London venue
  • London Dungeon --- it's a potent mix: horror + love
  • Holborn tube station Piccadilly line platform (just because I can often be found standing there) Love among the tube mice...
  • Tower of London --- Beefeater and vegetarian
  • House of Correction in Clerkenwell --- captive love.....
