Drift Plume is adopting an old NoHo Play: Nocturnal Notes. The idea came around when Drift Plume was planning its seasons for their campaigns, and an old story was mentioned between meetings. The idea of bringing it back was encouraging, as creativity was the name of Drift Plume’s game, reviving an old Play was more than welcoming to commit.
Nocturnal Notes was originally a NoHo stage play, produced at The Secret Rose Theatre, by StarGazerZ Production. The independent theatre company had disappeared for years, and the rights were never sealed to StarGazerZ. Luckily, the original rights were kept by the writers, Eugene Cordell and Stefanie Warner, allowing Drift Plume to produce the production, so as long as the Writers have creative freedom, as the holder of the rights. Drift Plume has no intent in paying for the rights, as the Writers are collaborating in the production artistically. The production date has yet been set, but the original blog for the prequel has been absorbed into Drift Plume’s roster of subdomains: notes.driftplume.com
Future Press Releases are expected within a month. Please subscribe for more updates.
