Workshop 3

Alan Brash at theatre workshop, Auckland


“Alan is an experienced, accomplished and produced screenwriter, with an extraordinarily unique story of his own. I find Alan smart, eminently likable and entirely professional. I look forward to following his successes.”

– Gary Goldstein,  Producer  (Pretty Woman, Under Siege, The Mothman Prophecies)

‘The Last Resort’ strikes me as an exceptional entry in its chosen genre: it’s not often that one can read a romantic comedy and be genuinely surprised by how it plays out. So kudos to Mr. Brash for constructing a truly adult, sophisticated rom-com that’s fresh, funny, and subversive – it should delight a contemporary audience that’s hungry for something new. I’ve told a few trusted people of its rare nature (i.e. a rom-com project that I do think will get made), and I look forward to my prediction coming true.

– BILLY MERNIT: Script assessor, author of ‘Writing the Romantic Comedy’ (Harper Collins, 2002), script analyst for Universal, Paramount, Sony
