Should I write a musical?
Many years ago I co-wrote a musical for the children in my class. I wrote the script and a colleague wrote the songs. Together our classes performed the musical to the rest of the school and to the parents. Highlights of the play were shown on a national children’s television programme. Later the script was published in an Education Department booklet. It was subsequently performed in other schools.
A few days ago I had the brilliant idea for another musical. It would be based on the lives of a small group of hoon drivers who fight against an invading army using their high volume car stereo systems as a weapon. Eventually they are forced to head over the mountains to escape.
I’m thinking of calling this play The Pound of Music.
