Must Worthwhile Creative Work Have an Agenda, or Can It Just Be Pure Escapism?

Stage ScriptThe Richard Osman Fan Club, 2021

The Richard Osman Fan Club is a short, farcical stage play written to provide a light-hearted 15 minute chuckle. My writing has no political agenda and no hidden message. It is made purely to entertain and provide everyday people with an escape for a short while, allowing them gain some much needed perspective after the last two years. Most of us have either suffered from or have supported someone suffering from mental health issues of late. Whilst this piece doesn’t delve into the psychological depths or workings of the human brain, it does allow us to switch off. I believe that to be equally important.
