Twelve actors, ten playwrights, one great concept!
Director’s Cut pulled off an adventurous evening of acting and writing talent on Tuesday, with its ‘Make The Cut’ slam at London’s prestigious St James Theatre.
It’s always a privilege to have a play performed by up and coming young actors. This time, not one, but two, got to interpret the role of Kips in my play ‘Sperm Vampire’ along with nine other monologues, also performed by more than one actor.
The monologues were selected from among hundreds submitted to the company. Each play was performed twice, by two different actors. Each actor got to learn three different monologues. The first round comprised all 12 actors going head to head in pairs, performing six of the shortlisted plays. The audience then got to vote who went forward. The six winning actors then went head to head in three groups of pairs, performing a new monologue. The final round saw three actors performing the final monologue.
Simon Desborough and Harry Boyd both gave sterling performances as Kips in ‘Sperm Vampire’ by Claire Booker. A big thank you and congratulations to them both for their excellent interpretations.
Congratulations also to all the short-listed writers, the other ten actors and mazeltoff to the ultimate winners, actor Sukh Kaur Ojla and writer Tom Ratcliffe.
