Right everyone. There are 37 scripts at the Sitcom Trials egroup which are in contention for the Bristol show at the Wardrobe Theatre on Friday 4th April(tickets on sale now).
You can find them all here:
I'd like you all to read, review and vote on them now. You post your votes here in this forum, or over in the other forum, choice is yours.
Vote YES, MAYBE or NO to every script you read, and give a brief review of each to prove you've read it, and to provide valuable feedback.
Please be honest yet tactful ("Didn't find the characters interesting, and the gags fell flat" is preferable to "This was shit and made my eyes bleed"). It would be very helpful if you could list your reviews in alphabetical order, and post them all together.
Deadline for voting - midnight Sunday 9th March, 2014
Don't worry if you don't get to read them all, but it would be splendid if you possibly can.
Your votes are counted Yes=2, MAYBE=1, NO= minus 1. So anything you don't vote on doesn't affect the figures.
The top ten scoring scripts will be read by the team and FOUR will be performed at the Wardrobe Theatre on Friday April 4th (unless deemed unstageable - we're unlikely to have the resources to properly do justice to a sitcom set directly after the Tet Offensive and featuring a flotilla of helicopter gunships dropping napalm on villages... with hilarious consequences).
The scripts are (in alphabetical order):
A Civil Defence Matter
A Power Struggle (Rodeway)
A Swiss Connection
AMEN - Coke Break
And the Lord Said
Anything for the weekend
Becky the Squirrel
Black Cab Detective - An Eye Test
Black Cab Detective - Blow my Fuses!
Bulldog Rusholme - Marriage Councillor
CEO (Episode One: The Interview)
Cloud Nine: Pilot
Divorce (Private People)
First Position (Episode Three: Vanessa's Big Break)
Fletcher Mallard - Classified
GAME OF SHOPS (Episode One: Office Magic)
Gems - Ready Meals
Ivory Towers (Episode One: Testing Times)
Living With Paul (Episode One)
Nat - The Worms
Open Mic Night (Episode One)
PS I Hate You (Episode One: The War of the Roses)
Real-True Spiritual Shop
School Of Hard Knocks
The London Bucket List
The Sirens Coming - Pilot
The Terror Merchants
TICKING OVER - Going Nowhere Fast

Best of luck to everyone who's entered, and have fun reviewing and voting!
