A QUESTION OF ERROL FLYNN by Karen Lynne
WORKSHOPS AND SESSIONS ON HOW A PLAY IS MADE.
Four part free and fun creative workshops in how we make a world premiere of a play – exclusively for those in recovery.
Locally based Nationally touring Professional Theatre Company MISSING PIECES THEATRE SHOW are pleased to offer you the rare opportunity for you to go behind the scenes and see how a World Premiere of a new play about the famous actor Errol Flynn is made at Eastern Angles Sir John Mills Theatre in Ipswich.
This world premiere is prior to a national tour and worldwide streaming of: A QUESTION OF ERROL FLYNN.
Who was Errol Flynn?
Errol Flynn was the sexy superstar of his period in the 1930’s 40’s and 50’s but had his own personal demons and addictions. He was somewhere between Daniel Craig and Johnny Depp (before his troubles!) in reputation – a huge film star.
The play is dramatic and darkly witty.
It has had a reading in front of a large audience at the Aldwych Theatre in the West End.
Four excellent experienced professional actors will perform the play and these actors will participate in the creative workshop along with other creatives: such as lighting, sound, film makers, costume and set design and the author and director. (As available.)
