Thomas Jordan, a friend of contributor, Michael Collins, had a play of his produced for his hometown of Northampton's festival. In this guest column, he writes about the experience.

Very pleased to welcome Tom to Winterwind. Quite enjoyed this view into the mind of getting a theatrical performance on the go.

It was a great read. Thanks for bringing him our way Michael.

It was very interesting seeing the production through Tom's eyes, from the conception to the writing to the actual production. And having the cast give their views at the end of the article made it even better.

I have to agree with Joseph; a very good piece which presents an intimate view of the process behind writing and producing theatre works. I hope this will be the first of many contributions from Tom.

Interesting indeed, to read such an in-depth view of what goes on while making a play. Especially liked the thoughts on the castings. I should ask my mother about that, she has a history of appending/directing plays for amateur-level, never asked her what goes on when choosing who to do which part.

A bit late, but just wanted to say it was an enjoyable read. But then, I've always been fascinated by things unseen. Yes, as a kid I used to watch documentaries while the other kids watched cartoons :mrgreen:

My favourite 'extras' on dvd's and blu-rays is stuff like deleted scenes and 'the making of', where this falls into the latter category. Anything that gives insight into why and how things come to be the way they are really :)
