February is LGBT History Month. [livejournal.com profile] friend_of_tofu, [livejournal.com profile] sashagoblin, [livejournal.com profile] mirabehn, and I are organizing a public readthrough of this rather delightful play (Wikipedia entry, script, about the author, that film).

It'll probably be the evening of Thursday 26th February, in a room in the University of Westminster. I'm figuring that the script runs about an hour from looking at it, so we might also want to program something else alongside it. Suggestions, anyone? Your input before hand is as welcome and as ardently desired as your presence on the night.

Regarding casting, I'm figuring at the moment that the best thing to do would be to split the larger parts and distribute things between whoever wants them on the day. NB: there are four small songs involved. One is for a female voice, one female-but-drunk, one a "melancholy youth", and one for a chorus of dancing demons. I don't have music for any of these.

I've done up a PDF script to use, mostly because I wanted to - it's here [600k PDF]. Note: I'm having some trouble opening it from the website, saying that it can't extract an embedded font. Some of the pages are displaying blank. Anyone know what I've done wrong, or if it's my FTP connection to the webserver playing up again?

Depending on what we decide about staging, degrees of nudity, and dance set-pieces, I may have to re-edit the script and cut out some of the stage directions. The venue might also have some influence on this, either from the staff's preferences, the size, or the windows.

As far as props go, most of them are dildos. I'm inclining towards the use of humorously shaped vegetables for this. The script specifies a fountain shaped like a naked woman standing on her head, spreading her legs, and pissing straight upwards; that will almost certainly not appear in the final version, I suspect.
