FMP – Lynn’s first draft

In our joint year 2 lesson Lynn explained to us all the rough outline of the show which she had managed to piece together so far, including who would be involved in the different parts. She hadn’t yet figured out the whole thing by any means, however she had started to link together some of the ideas that she thought would work well in the structure we had spoken about as a whole company before and had began to tie these together with a vague narrative. She stressed that no ideas anyone proposed were wasted and even they haven’t  madd it into the final cut lots of the final decisions were influenced by the original proposed ideas even if juts the themes or characters. Lynn filled in any gaps with some of the newly proposed ideas we had made in our emails to her, as well as her own personal ideas.

This is a rough outline of the structure so far: 

  • Audience enter
  • Onstage tables with some of company members sitting at
  • Well spoken bouncers and waitresses are on stage (backing Saint jimmies song)
  • The owner Saint Jimmy welcomes everyone to club (Saint Jimmy song) – jack plays Saint Jimmy
  • Spotlight on various people on the tables (influence by improve game)
  • Two women enter and her ex enters and has a row (abusive dance to song angels and demons sung by Jess with Zoe and Faye dancing)
  • Sophia rescues her by singing nothing’s going to harm you
  • Jimmy intervenes and talks the injured girl through the path of morality
  • He introduces the first act on the stage (Bring on the Men, Emma will take solo with chorus girls joining)
  • Posh boys (Scott) takes a fancy to Jess (one of the dancers) but she rejected him
  • Daytona and James talking to terrorists (one man terrorists is another mans freedom fighters) no innocent people
  • Next act on stage (swan lake ballet solo – vicky)
  • Jimmy challenges someone to find someone with more virtues than vices (Leah performs a piece about a man she interviewed who was but how boring he was)
  • Waitresses – song called ‘I want to be seduced’ – (Sian)
  • Woman comments it’s no good waiting round for life to happen (Charlie’s angels dance)
  • Table of posh blokes (extract from play ‘posh’) – national trust taking their massive properties explores envy, resentment, grief (Scott, Harry etc)

Other songs and pieces that will definitely be included
