Having attended the performance on Wednesday 8 February it was an enjoyable and interesting experience seeing a screenplays being performed in this manner. The evening was hosted by stand-up comedian Kelly Convey.
All three screenplays were enjoyable, however Crescendo by Kai Henderson stood out as it also featured a close friend of mine Alida Pantone. She plays the character of Maria a controlling woman that commands attention and absolutely loves getting it. She'll do anything to get what she wants in life, driven by her need to raise her status even further. Alida gives a great performance as Maria, capturing her posture, body language giving her great stage presence, combined with her nuances she manages to create a memorable manipulative femme fatale.
The next performance of Screen Rebels: Love Bites is on Sunday 19 February at 3.30pm at The Phoenix Artist Club, 1 Phoenix Street, London WC2H 8BU
