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.
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.
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.
I am delighted to be accepted to participate in this event for the second year in a row. I will be reading a brand new piece.
