Writing the 6 Women Script

Writing the 6 Women Script

“As I begin to write 6Women I am reminded of learning to knit at school. I  loved the experience of seeing a woollen scarf unravel (literally) in my hands. I never did quite master not casting off as quickly as I casted on, and so my own woollen scarf, apart from being of wiggly widths, had a very many holes! Currently I am trying to weave the very many responses to our questionnaires, the resultant 12 interviews of 12 very different women and my own imaginings into a whole piece, that might do justice to the generosity and sheer extraordinariness of all these women’s lives thus far. As soon as I try and encapsulate one story another has to be cast off or I have a hole where I wished I had been even nosier than we were during this process! However whatever wiggly script results I hope the warmth of their characters reaches out to our audiences….which is very soon…gulp..back to writing!”
