The Tart

In mid-February, I started developing six premises into scripts for It’s My Shout; hoping multiple submissions would increase my chances of selection. My plan worked! And yesterday, it was officially announced that one of my scripts, Tha’s What I ‘Eard, will be produced by It’s My Shout and broadcast on the BBC (my first industry credit). You’ll have to wait until September to see that, but I plan to share the other five scripts before then. The first of which is The Tart. The Tart was the easiest to write as it was adapted from a segment of my feature-length script, The Darning Needle; my favourite segment as it features the best and most comical dialogue and the character of the protagonist, Elissa, really shines through. However, I think The Tart improved on the segment as it allowed me to introduce new setups and payoffs, which also allowed for even more comedy and strong character moments for Elissa.

Synopsis

Elissa’s dream is to be a rock star, and she has the personality and creativity to achieve it, but those who should be encouraging her, only suppress her; forcing her into either isolating herself or acting out. But when pushed too far, Elissa makes her final act one to remember.
