In her own words… Lucy Sheen.

We have been working on Sho fu, Wianbu, Pi by Lucy Sheen all week, and the play’s subject matter of comfort women has made the project a very intense one. Lucy has been very busy with the rewrites and restructure, so this time not a full blog but a staccato interview indication of where we are at in the process. See the result of Lucy’s hard work this Saturday 12th Dec 3pm at the Tristan Bates theatre. Tickets you can find here.

Three questions please, Lucy!

How did you start this script?
I started this script about four/five years ago.
How are you finding the workshop process?
Brilliant for me! Sadly there are not enough opps like this for emerging writers…
What are your hopes for the script?
That it will go on to full production and that as a writer I’ll actually get paid the full fee!
