  1. Hi Kimberley,
    I have a question inspired by a great dramaturgical report from London Playwrights, regarding Necessary Coincidences, that I would love to join a Zoom session to discuss. (Your monthly Wednesday 7.00 pm time is a refreshing 6.00 am for me in Australia.)
    What techniques are effective to plant essential meetings between central characters and those they must meet, through the course of the story, to progress the action?
    This is a particular problem in one of my plays, because the central characters live in a different part of the world from the characters whose help they must request, and take up. So when all the characters are eventually in the same place, it is hard to make their timely meetings seem less than a series of impossibly fortunate coincidences.
    In everyday life fortunate coincidences are natural, and perfectly acceptable, but making them seem natural and acceptable on stage can be hard.
    And we can’t afford to spend a lot of stage time setting up these necessary coincidences.
    I would love to discuss techniques that my fellow playwrights use, to make these essential meetings in the action seem natural.
    Thank you, and best wishes,

      Hi Virginia,

      This is a really interesting question and I think it would make a wonderful Zoom session! I will email you to discuss this further and try to find a suitable time to work across the time zones!

      Best wishes,
