Romance was written as part of my audition for the 24-Hour Plays: Old Vic New Voices 2009.

A total of 100 finalists were chosen for the audition weekend (14 writers, 14 directors, 12 producers, and 60 actors), spread out over two days of auditions. On my day, the 7 writers chosen selected four or five actors to write for, then we had an hour-and-a-half to write a ten-to-fifteen minute piece that was then directed and rehearsed, followed by a script-in-hand performance, which served as our individual auditions. Because the staff of Old Vic New Voices enjoyed Romance so much, I was selected to participate in the actual 24-Hour Plays.
