Can you believe it? Can you?!! We, at our local Rural, won the heats for a mini-Play competition way back in March of this year. This was lovely, we were really pleased to run home with the cup, make videos and tell all our mates about it. Though a bit daunted to be having to don our costumes again to re-perform, as'twer, we were up for a Challenge!


Last night was the County Final. We were up against some stiff competition and all the ladies were nervous, and held bated breath while the Adjudicator read out his comments, including some bits about the bits he was impressed by.

Looking at him when he arrived earlier in the evening, a flat briefcase attached to his hand, and sporting a neat beard, shiny glasses, red cheeks and maganamous grin, I could tell he wouldn't mind any of our knicker, liquour or stripper jokes.

Oh, we had our champions of champions speeches ready. We'd decided who and in which order the mike would be taken; even the pose we would make around the Winner's Trophy for the undoubtedly glamorous photographs we'd be called to do, despite that it would, no doubt become boring, yawn.

But, can you guess?

We only went and bloody Won!

Autographs R Us, then.*

* When asked if she'd like our autographs, 'F' said 'I knew you before you were famous!'

aaaaah well done! did you video it? can you post it here? i want to see it!

Thank you, eliza!

We wanted to video it but, weren't allowed, grrr! Aparently, we have to write to the SWRI Education committee to ask if we can video anything in the future! Quaint, or what?

And, this is only because some old busy body ASKED if we could vid it, when we were just going to anywway. hey ho.

Doris said...

Congratulations! I am thrilled for you! Can we see the script, if not the video?

tea and cake said...

Ooh, now there's a thought, doris!

I will work that out, I think.

I have, just about 5 minutes ago, submitted my tma02 for Playwriting, and I am full of cigarettes and coffee!

But, thank you for your congratulations!

Karen said...

Hurrah well done you

tea and cake said...

thanks, Karen! will look in on you v.v. soon.

Cathy said...


Hope the TMA is just as successful.

hi Kathy and thanks.

I reeeeaaaallly don't think much of my tma submission. As usual, I left it to the last minute for some reason, I do this all the time. I will be surprised if this one passes. The playwriting short course is very intense for a 10pointer and, well, I just seemed to fuck around instead of just getting on down to it. Which is silly, really, as I do enjoy writing... ah, well. Sorry to rant!
