‘ICED’ script to stage project with Ray Shell

27 January, 2022

This week ICTheatre Brighton have been honoured to have Ray Shell in-house to workshop his new script from renowned novel ‘ICED’.

As well as being a well-known Actor and Director, Ray is an internationally published author whose novel ‘ICED’ is being produced by American film producer Lee Daniels, with a screenplay by Menno Mayjes.

Ray now has the UK stage rights and has chosen ICTheatre to start workshopping the script with 12 of our Training Professionals. This begins the journey from script to stage, and we hope the stage will be a Global one!

We are so honoured that Ray has chosen our college to start this journey as it is a great opportunity for the TPs involved. The week will finish with a live reading of the script in front of an audience.

“I believe if your destiny is there, if it’s for you, the universe will conspire to make things happen…”
