“ELISE: It’s just a case of keeping on top of the Social media. We have to keep it updated with our… I was going to say movements but I think that’s the wrong/

SIRENNA: No, I know what you mean. We need to reel them in with our charm and exciting progress.

They have, as ever, buoyed each other up. A moment to enjoy the coffee.

Elise and Sirenna have written a play. They love it. Nobody else cares about it yet.

They are performing it. They have nabbed a great space. Two thousand pounds worth of a great space.

They are determined, enthusiastic and completely new to all of this. But they have a strategic marketing strategy, organized pages of to-do lists and sustainable coffee in Keep Cups.

All they need to do now is sell out. And write a compelling brief about their piece.

And find someone to take them seriously.

A play about two women writing a play about two women writing a play about two women writing a play. IT’S A PLAYCEPTION.
