TOWER STREET by Lynne O’Sullivan
Bradley Benson is a high flying property developer at the top of his game, transforming derelict buildings into luxury apartments. But when an old acquaintance turns up, he finds that demolishing the past isn’t quite as easy….
Lynne wrote Tower Street ten years ago as a lunchtime soap for the stage, shown in six parts at what was once the Actors’ Centre, off Leicester Square. A pilot was filmed, directed by US actress, producer and ex soap star, Niki Flacks. The project lay on a shelf until recently when Lynne dusted it off and brought it up to date as an idea for a mini-series.
Here is a taster trailer from the original : https://vimeo.com/64176796
During lockdown Player Playwright went online. The online events proved a success and so for this coming season we plan to alternate between live events at our traditional home, Upstairs @ the North London Tavern, and online via Zoom.
