The virtual DG Footlights™ series continues, celebrating new dramatic works in progress by United Kingdom based dramatists! This virtual reading will present Souvenir by Matt Gurr.
Following the death of his closest friend, Iain must decide whether he wants to continue the rest of his life as a closeted gay man. For the last 40 years, Iain and his friend took weekend trips from Scotland to Soho to experience what life as out gay men could be like. Now aged 60, Iain takes that trip alone for the first time and finds himself reliving old memories over one night that will change the rest of his life.
DG Footlights™ is a program, created and moderated by the Dramatists Guild, that connects dramatists with free space in which to hold a public reading of a new work that is currently in development. This initiative operates on a space-grant model: a representative from the Guild will arrange for a venue to donate space during allocated dates and times, and will ensure that the space is available for dramatists to use to present a self-produced reading to the public, with an optional feedback session following the reading. Attendance is always free and open to all.
