A Day To Remember

"Always wanted him to call on a Wednesday. I never liked Wednesday's. I used to finish work, walk through the subway, past Levvy street and onto the 56 bus and hope he'd be there at the end waiting for me. He never was."


A play by Amanda Greenwood that explores the relationship between a daughter and her mother suffering from Alzheimer's.

A play for one woman. Bang, was first written in January, 2015 and adapted for performance in May 2017. The play plunges into the internal world of Ebony and explores her mental state and ability to live life between the walls of a mental institution. The only constant in her life, a bang that she hears with utter precision and the green trays that could contain anything. 


'They open the door and let me smell the scented lavender. It sits in little pots as you walk through the corridors. Can't help but smell it. It's lovely.'

A Short comedy based on the theme '25'.

17th November, 2014


Sandra has 25. Yes, 25! And Bob is a little shocked. But never mind that. He's on a date. It's his first date in ten years and he wants to take things nice and slowly. Sandra, on the other hand, has been married four times. She doesn't want to hang around. She wants a man. But not just any man. She wants a husband and someone to look after the kids. Yes, she wants a family man. She makes that quite clear. Well, after telling a few porkies online. But never mind that. They're together now and that's all that matters. Well, they're in the same room anyway.

SCRIPT YORKSHIRE

18/03/2014

'Another super night at the Basement. The theme of 24 hours produced a wide range of scripts and the result was a very close call.
Jamie McKeller was runner-up with 24 Little Big Adventures, his hilarious (and oddly affecting) script with Mother, a daughter and Ben, the talking bomb. In the end it was Amanda's 24 Hours Married which won the audience's hearts and votes - beautifully acted by YSCP members Rosy Rowley and Jamie Searle.

Amanda joins previous winners, Ruby Clarke, Lisa Valentine and David Kennard in the All-Winners' Final (The Studio, York Theatre Royal) on Monday July 7th.'

AUDREY'S PERFECT SERIES Written by Amanda Greenwood

Audrey's Perfect Holiday Easingwold & Pelsall, UK, 6th & 7th September 2013 / 17th June 2017.

Directed by Amanda Greenwood.


Audrey’s perfect holiday is a musical-drama in two-acts written by Amanda Greenwood. The play is set in a local town and opens inside Audrey and Ted’s living room. Ted is a happily married husband and Audrey, a middle aged woman, who makes her living working in the local cake shop. She is relatively happy but the play reveals a woman flawed by her own naivety giving her the uncanny ability to be led by just about anyone. Add her pretentious neighbour Margie to the mix and you have the perfect recipe for disaster.


Act two is set on a campsite in the welsh Countryside and Audrey and ted have set up camp. They have the setting for a seemingly perfect holiday with on-site entertainment, beautiful weather and enough friends to keep Audrey occupied, leaving us to wonder what could possibly go wrong. With some inheritance off old Bert, her new friends Alison and Frank and the offer of a caravan, life for Audrey is bliss but we soon find out that Audrey has got much more than she bargained for.
