Tag lines for my script Wedding Tunes having seen it performed today, really strange but really good seeing it on stage with voices! These are all pretty silly, which is silliest….
The heart of the wedding machine explodes.
Cupid plays ping pong with three sets of lovers at a wedding.
The wedding dress won’t survive the day, will she?

Some of the questions Julie Wilkinson (script guru on the course) has put to me about the script:
Does all this fuss over organisation undermine the nature of the marriage contract, or not?
Who is your protagonist or protagonists?
What is at stake in your story?
Q1 I think I am trying to balance the conflict between wedding as private matter and public display, wedding as a business and wedding as a contract between two people. I think it’s important the relationship lives beyond the wedding, and I want to make the point that this whole ‘one day’ idea is actually a bit of a myth, maybe similar to the idea of finding ‘The One’. So I think the fuss is part of the whole marriage contract, and disguises the relationship as a living thing. It at once undermines and reaffirms.
Q2: Today, I decided that David and Katie are the key couple. It makes sense that they are as it is their wedding, and I think emotionally their journey is the most up and down.
Q3: What is at stake is whether two people’s determination to be together can survive the destruction of their idea of what the relationship is.
Okaaaaay then. Probably will change all this tomorrow, but no worries.
