I’d apologize for not updating this since January if there was anything to update you on, but finally, there is! March 2013 is promising to be a rather excellent month in this playwright’s estimation, and here’s why:
First, Kid Turboni Brings the Rain is going to be bringing some rain again to the Growing Stage – the Children’s Theatre of New Jersey. Here are the details from my previous post, updated to be accurate for the second round:
What: Kid Turboni Brings the Rain, part of the New Play-Reading Series.
When: March 6th, at 7:30PM.
Where: The Growing Stage – The Children’s Theatre of New Jersey
Address: 7 Ledgewood Avenue; Netcong, New Jersey; 07857.
Why: Because, you know–America?
Come out for round two if you missed round one and hear a heartwarming tale of family, friends, love, and rain overcoming the sadness of loneliness, isolation, pain, and loss!
Now, on to my play Truth or Consequences, which is about loneliness, isolation, pain and loss overcoming family, friends, love, and…well, rain doesn’t really show up but if it did it’d be so freaking overcame by the others. Plus, it’s about porn, so we’re winning at winning.
I’ll be taking a revised version of the play out to West Virginia University during the week of March 16th, where I’ll be workshopping it all week with a public reading being the end goal on the university’s campus. While there, I’ll be teaching a few playwriting classes, discussing my translation of Everyman with a class that’s focusing on medieval drama, discussing the generation of new work with a physical theatre class, and meeting with lighting students to discuss creative interaction between writers and designers–at least, this is the plan.
I’ll post an update with specifics about the reading and reactions to my classes as an update becomes available. Big thanks to Jim Knipple, director extraordinaire, for this opportunity as well as the whole amazing crew at WVU!
My writing is nothing if not…varied.
