Found Plays

I've recently been fascinated by the Found Plays the Royal Court Theatre are collecting as part of their "Open Court" series.  According to the website:

"A Found play can be an overheard conversation, one side of a telephone call or a magazine article that you think belongs on stage."  

Particular favourites include "Evangelical Dave" and "Who Killed the Seagull".

This seemed a useful destination for the results of my terrible habit of writing down bits of overheard conversations in coffee shops/on buses/etc., specifically "A Photogenic Memory".
