No, I did not really watch Jersey Shore. All day, that is. I gave myself my usual 2 minutes a week and promptly changed the channel. I like to kill my brain cells slowly, over a period of time.
Okay, so now that I have taken care of that little bit of business, let's get on with the show. I am here today to hand out a little update and that is all. I will take time on another day to bring more interesting news of the world, so take solace in that.
I finished the first draft of my new full length play Poison and even had a first reading of it amongst friends about a month ago. Readings are always helpful and I hope to take the feedback and have a second draft finished within the coming weeks. I have let it settle a bit, taken a few weeks off from it, and am now ready to move forward. My hopes that I will have a staged reading of the play in the summer, so stay tuned.
As for my first completed full length, Solace, I am still waiting on a few places to get back to me. I have prepped the play to be sent for publication and I just have finish off a few other requirements before sending out. I am also in search of places to possibly have it produced within the year. There are options out there and it's just a matter of getting the script to those places and talking to them about productions.
That is all I've really worked on. It is a hope that I will be assistant director for a play for Alley Repertory Theater later this spring, so keep an eye out for that. I have loosely started a new full length play as well. The first 10 pages are written, but it is still a concept at a best.
So there you have it. As always, readers, I hope this day finds you in good spirits. Keep up the pursuit and hard work of living your dreams.
