The Ticket to Write Festival, a showcase for original
plays selected from a wide international entry of short works on a Beatles
Theme, was held at the Unity Theatre, Liverpool, in July.
Produced by experienced
industry professionals and showcased by actors from the Ace Drama Theatre
Company, the Festival takes the form of a competition. With writers from the
USA and throughout the UK making the final, this annual cultural event
reinforces the continuing world-wide appeal of The Beatles
Making the cut in this select group this year was Torrevieja
Writer’s Circle member Phil McNulty, a published travel writer, essayist, poet
and author of the political thriller ‘Deep State’ – available for Kindle from
Phil’s fifteen minute play ‘Darren and George’ focuses on
the ‘quiet’ Beatle George Harrison, a tribute to the band’s lead guitarist to
mark the 70th anniversary of his birth.
Torrevieja Writer’s Members will have the opportunity to
hear the play as writer McNulty delivers a reading of ‘Darren and George’ at
the meeting on November 27 at The Olympia, Mil Palmeras. Described as an
encounter on a Liverpool railway station, the two-hander will also feature
writer-member Tom Fratarolli in the twenty minute performance.
