Writing my latest script, has awakened a lot of feelings from within. I suppose this will always be the case, when you are writing a story (for the stage) about unrequited love. After much conversation with some friends, they divulged their favourite films on this subject are, ‘An Officer and a Gentleman’, ‘ The Notebook’, ‘P.S. I Love You’, ’10 Things I Hate About You’, ‘Amelie’, ‘House of Sand and Fog’, ‘Romeo and Juliet’ and ‘Revolutionary Road’ were the main contenders. How do you determine what love is? As we age, sometimes we develop cynical thoughts about surrendering our heart. When you are experiencing (seismic) feelings, where is the off switch? Obviously, you are unable to control this sensation. I have cried and laughed developing these characters. Boom.

    Sounds difficult….how do we show and tell love to an audience? Now you have me pondering…there will be no housecleaning today. 🙂
