24-Hour Play Festival This Weekend

OK, I'm not writing a 24-hour long play (it's more like 10 minutes), rather I have only 24 hours in which to write it. Less than that, really, because the director and actors will have to use half that time to rehearse, memorize, and produce it. I'll probably only get a few hours of writing, max, but I think it will be good to not edit too much. There's no way to prepare (at least I don't want to plan stuff out before hand) so I'm looking forward to it, but I'm a little nervous, too. Check out the Free Times article or go to the Trustus Theatre web site for more details.

New Reading at Trustus

So this tax day, having already filed and e-deposited our little return, I'm going to spend some time with friends at Trustus Theatre doing a reading of a new work in progress. This one is a comedy (hopefully) about death, family and gardening in the nude.

Reading in Houston (Part Deux)

I had a great time in Texas last week, reading LOSING SLEEP at the Texas Repertory Theatre. It was really good to see them (including Wilbur the pug dog) and I was happy with the way the reading turned out. I always learn something new - something that I want to rewrite, something that I like now for different reasons - and it's great to have the validation that people who don't know me at all can somehow catch the vibe.

On a selfish note, I got an "Economy Plus" seat on the plane coming home, and had no one sitting next to me, so I had some time to make play edits while they were fresh in my mind.
