Good news this week: I won theBoston PlaySlam - Diverse Voices festival with my play "That's All Folks"! I hear I had a stellar cast. I'm pretty excited about it. This play has been produced for the festival several times and has come close but not won the competition. I really, really wish I could have seen this production. I've never seen this play on its feet or even read for that matter.
This weekend I'm working hard on my rewrite for "Echo" for Inch Worm Play Reading Series--April 25th. I'm so excited to be working with an extremely talented cast -- (Lisa Herceg, Kate Black, Alexandra Shepherd, and Vincent Mahler). I also have a fabulous director Leigh Barrett! This play was also a semi-finalist for the Fireside Amercian Theater Festival and I hope and pray I do it justice with my rewriting.
I'm working with WTA on a new plays called "Shifted." I'm very excited because it's so rare for me to write in a room with others. There is something so inspirational about being in a room with other creative people. I also think this is the exact right venue to starting something new for me. This is going to be so much fun because Dan Foss, a fabulous director, is going to direct the short piece from it that we do in June.
This Sunday begins auditions for "The Double". I know were going to see some great people! The biggest thing I need to remember is to just have so much fun! I'm too old and too "fragile" sometimes. This whole life is about having fun...not being serious or being seriously respected. Remember that!
Finally, I got a raise.
Note to self. Remember that being petty is stupid and never as much fun as you thought it would be. So stop it!
