  1. Maverick Musicals


    Very impressive… containing so many styles/ideas/cameos (all brilliantly realised) to have such a strength of purpose and focus… pythonesque without being meaningless. A contentious theme dealt with sensitively yet with conviction and commitment. A fantastic close. Entertaining and accessible yet still thought provoking.

    Before addressing this exceptional new play, I would like to reiterate what I have written about him so often over the years. Not only is Mark a very accessible playwright but his commitment to his work in education, in his work for and commitment to youth theatre in general is legendary amongst the cognicenti and he has that exceptional gift of being able to demonstrate his concern about the issues he addresses in his plays as well as his passionate love of theatre itself.
    And so to this latest excellent play, Kill Jill. The play explores the hot topical issues of homeowners defending themselves and how far should “Reality TV” be allowed to go? It is a play that is destined to delight and tempt drama teachers and their students of all ages as it is full of imaginative techniques. It will also thrill anyone exploring Citizenship issues through imaginative and entertaining theatre. It is a play that surely must become a major school text at all levels, as well as destined to be an ideal choice for Youth Theatre, Higher Education and a challenging text for amateur theatre production. I cannot commend it highly enough, both as a production choice or as a superb read.

    “What a great script! Powerful stuff Mark! At times the dialogue’s quite surreal – I love the Panto moments – e.g. having the cow mooing inconspicuously until the final blurting out in Ali G speak! Wonderful stuff!!!!! I found the build up of tension in the visit to George ‘s castle and the scene between Jill and George started to put the play in firm thriller territory! The playfulness with style and wide range of reference points all make it a clear continuation of your ‘anytime, anyplace, anywhere’ theatrical freedom . Kill Jill is a very fizzy ride!”

    “Kill Jill” was a definite hit. Not for the faint hearted. Challenging to put on – we used two cameras with live feed to our overhead screen, interspersed with slides with chapter headings and the occasional editorial photo-comment. This made it possible for my tech students to attain very high marks by dealing with a very complex show. I needed two camera people, a video mixer, a lighting person, an audio person and a Stage Manager. I wouldn’t recommend it to anyone who doesn’t have the technological knowhow – or the students willing to learn it. The actors also had opportunities to impress – particularly the final scene between the dying Jill and about to be dead George. I liked “Too Much Punch For Judy” as a more emotional journey (and great opportunity for actors) but this one can’t be beat for technological complexity.
