Time to raise curtain on a dramatic writing challenge
It was an ordinary afternoon and I was driving, or rather lurching, through a rainy Pearse Street in Dublin's city centre, when my mobile phone rang. At the other end of the line was a man named Gary Flood who made the most astonishing proposal.
Gary turned out to be a producer on behalf of Vision Independent Productions ('Operation Transformation'; 'The Hit').
Would I be interested, he asked, in being a participant, alongside two other writers, Fiona Looney and Pat McCabe, in 'Play Next Door', an innovative writing project for RTE TV?
