Derek Bond runs a recurrent theatre event at Theatre503 called PLAYlist.
It’s theatre in the form of a mixtape; each playwright chooses a song
and then writes a play inspired by the song, to the same length as the
song. He’s dojng a Christmas edition and he’s asked me to contribute.
This sounds like fun.
I’ve chosen ‘Santa Claus in Coming to
Town’ by The Crystals. My play’s called He Knows When You Are Sleeping
and concerns a couple whose discovery that Santa is coming prompts them
to interrogate their own lives to see whether they’ve been naughty or
nice. It’s funny, I think.
The event is due to run 14-22 December.
