Nay. Remember Me! A Comic Play about Shakespeare and the First Folio of 1623. Available now and published by Lazy Bee Scripts
Nay. Remember Me! was first performed as part of the Royal Shakespeare Fringe in 2001 at The Other Place Theatre in Stratford-upon-Avon to sell-out audiences. It was immediately published in a small print run by Stratford Playscripts and sold at the Royal Shakespeare Company retail outlets. Nay. Remember Me! was then revived in March 2010 and performed at the Coach House Theatre in Malvern and then toured to the stunning medieval barn at Torre Abbey in Torquay, which was turned into a bespoke theatre for the occasion. Nay. Remember Me! was nominated for best drama in the West Midland Region by the National Operatic and Dramatic Association in 2010 - and their representative Trevor Guest said that "Nay. Remember Me! has humour and pathos" adding that the script is exceptionally well-written."
The Revenger's Tragedy A Modern Acting Version of Thomas Middleton's Classic Work
In 2005 Amelia used knowledge, gained while studying for an MA in Shakespeare Studies at the Shakespeare Institute, to write an actor's edition of The Revenger's Tragedy. It was performed on a replica of the Globe which was built and erected in the Forum Theatre in Malvern. The Malvern Gazette wrote, "The Revenger's Tragedy performed by Malvern Theatre Players with a script by Amelia Marriette is fast-paced and lively." As many people know, Jacobean tragedies are rarely praised for being fast-paced, Amelia's skill lies in her ability to condense and make such works both accessible and fun.
Three Classic Adaptations Three Modern Versions of Three Timeless Classics
In 2011, 2012 and 2013 Amelia adapted three classic works - "Alice in Wonderland", "The Secret Garden" and "The Wind in the Willows." All of the adaptations were commissioned by Malvern Theatre Players. They were performed to packed houses - the Forum Theatre in Malvern seats 700 people - in the January post-Christmas seasons. The large casts gave actors with experience a chance to share their knowledge and gave first-time actors opportunities to learn new skills. Members of the local community were involved, and Worcester University designed and made all the costumes. Local children provided the many extras that these classics demand. All were directed by Chris Bassett, and the artwork for the back-projected graphics were drawn by the graphic artist Amy Riches.
Point Blank A Play for Radio broadcast by Riviera FM
Point Blank takes place on the Western Front in France during the First World War. It is based on the tragic and true story of one professional soldier's utter disillusionment, a disillusionment that led him to save the life of one German Corporal. That German Corporal became the Chancellor of Germany that German Corporal was Adolf Hitler.
"Point Blank was brilliant from concept, writing and production values. It was as good as any BBC play I have heard and better than many."
