I have a friend, who's friend's dad is a writer for tv and theatre - and friend of a friend (of a friend)!
Marvelous, lovely man! He's read the stage play for Bing and Moo and come back with all sorts of great feedback. The most useful?
Screen is shot in 'takes', with time in between to set things up... stage is one continuous event. Well der! Until he spelt it out like that, I hadn't thought of that, not really. What a plonka. It really is very different to writing a screenplay, and I need to strip out my (bossy) stage directions and let the dialogue flow!
Draft 1, with re-writes (I can't really call the version I sent him a draft) is approaching completion. Just wonder how many times I can ask him to read it? Poor man. IF I ever make it as a screenwriter, I promise I shall be as kind to aspiring writers as people have been to me.
