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.

January 2020

I’m not one for New Years resolutions but I do like the idea of new energy and opportunities being birthed into a new year. I strive to bring creativity and creative energy into my life as much as possible, as I find that it fuels me in getting through the more mundane aspects of life.

Towards that end, I have three fun events coming up in January 2020:

On January 5, 2020, I will be singing two musical theatre pieces at Theatre Pub. The show starts at 8pm and takes place at the Painted Lady (218 Ossington Avenue). $5

On January 6, 2020, I will have my script, Peggy & Ted, workshopped in Sing For Your Supper. I’m very excited to see my characters come to life. As usual, I will be reading as well. Actors should arrive at 7pm to sign up, and the show starts at around 8pm at the Tarragon Theatre (30 Bridgeman Avenue). Free!

On January 29, 2020, I am performing an original monologue in 20/20 Vision. The show starts at 8pm at Baka Gallery Café (2256 Bloor St. W.). $12 in advance, $15 at the door.

Happy new year!
