"Parallel Lines" / "The Incident"
My latest theatre visit, on behalf of the British Theatre Guide, was to see Katherine Chandler’s “Parallel Lines” at Chapter, the script of which won the 2012 Wales Drama Award (indeed, the press night coincided with the announcement that she’d received a runners-up award for another play from the judges of the Bruntwood Prize). An impressively angry, funny and poignant piece, about young people being severely let down by their elders.
In an attempt at flash fiction, I wrote an 800 word short story entitled “The Incident”, and posted it on the Readwave website, just to see if anybody would read and comment on it. So far, so good.
