A blog for readers and writers

A blog about the stories we tell each other and how we tell them...

52 weeks 52 writers = 1 play

Next Best Page is about to produce a highly collaborative and innovative piece of theatre.
On the 3rd January 2011, the first page of the play will be available to view on their website. (Click on the title of this post to go there.) This will be written by a mystery playwright.  Each week throughout 2011 anyone can send in their Next Best Page. At the end of each week, the creative team will read all submissions and decide which entry will join the script. Each writer will take their inspiration from the previous pages and be the inspiration for the next page.
The story could go anywhere....sounds risky, doesn't it? Sounds exciting. The result will be performed in London in 2012 (they are taking bookings now).
