This week

It’s been a very exciting week for me and the week to come will be as well.

Yesterday, I learned that my short play, “Introducing my Crazy” was selected to be a part of the Northumberland Players Summer Shorts Festival. I’m looking forward to directing again and hoping to be cast in one of the other scripts. The beauty of live theatre pivoting to online means that there are so many more opportunities to perform as well as sharing my work.

A few days ago, I was very excited to find out that I got cast in an audiobook. The details are hush hush for now, but rest assured that I will spill the details as soon as I am able to do so.

The past three days have been filled with rehearsals for a staged reading of “Blue Stockings” with Alumnae Theatre’s Cyber Reads which is being performed on Monday at 7pm via Zoom. I have the joy of playing three different parts and I’m having so much fun. If you are interested in watching the show, let me know and I will forward the Zoom info.

Lastly, and certainly not least, on Wednesday, I will be reading at the Brockton Writers Series via Zoom. It’s been a year since I was asked to participate and I’m very much thrilled to be included in such a distinguished event. Now I just need to figure out what I’m going to read.

For more information on these and other upcoming performances, check out the Performances and Readings section of my web site, which is updated regularly.

I may not have a room of my own, but for a few hours in the middle of the night, I can pretend that I do.

Roll for Initiative

StageWrite Burlington Online short Play Festival invited short comedic scripts that involved a banana, a fork, a crash, and a woman crying, while NOT mentioning COVID-19. I had the good fortune of being cast as Stacy in Roll for Initiative written by the brilliant, Paul Koster.

The Festival of Literary Diversity

I’ve known of FOLD for several years now and now I can participate in lots of workshops, for free, while remaining in my chair (and without the necessity of making small talk with strangers). This is one of the many reasons that I’m loving Zoom these days. I’ve already registered for three of the workshops. And did I mention that it’s free?

As I was editing my piece this afternoon, I realized that a whole new piece was calling out to be read tonight. I was still working on it right up to the moment that I took the stage. I’m glad I listened to my instincts. It felt right. The feedback I got from the audience and the individual folks who approached me afterward confirmed that I made the right choice.
