    Thanks for all of your comments, some great points to consider.. I had actually done some research into the choir and location, and the song is one already in their repertoire, but certainly some expense in travel costs. The car does not necessarily need to be 'wrecked', there are plenty of tricks you can use to create a crash scene, but agree logistics are certainly more tricky than some other scripts. Appreciate the feedback.

    A nicely drawn community story - I like how Bill's fate bookended the main action. You might want to tighten up the punctuation and lose 'Wales' but that's me nitpicking. They don't impact the overall story negatively.

    Nice group dynamic but production requirements too high for me… singers, hall, crashed car! I'm sure someone could, but I'm afraid it won't be me.

    The best of luck with it.

    I love that a group who regularly meets decides to stay to the end. May be at the beginning some of them say goodbye to their absent love ones on their phones before finally joining in the group.
    Just a suggestion.

    I like this and at first thought it was some therapy session or community group for widows and then at the bottom of page one it kicks in - it reminds me and has some elements of the last scenes from Titanic. I think this works and we see their friend Bill right at the end.
    I don't really have anything to add other than perhaps each of the attendees holding a photo of their loved ones? Just a thought.
