Our Write-a-thon will be in exactly two weeks! Here are some ground rules for the event:
-I will write a new, full-length play, in 24 hours. The live stream will begin at 6 pm on Friday, March 24, 2023, and will end at 6 pm on Saturday, March 25, 2023. The live stream will be embedded in takeabite.ca , and donations must come via that website.
-Viewers will see a split-screen: on one side, me getting more tired and frantic: on the other side, the play as it’s being written!
-Here is the play’s basic plot:
“3 very different people meet online at the start of the pandemic. They connect, but as the pandemic wears on, their individual lives change, which alters their relationship.”
-At 6 pm on March 24, YOU will give me names for the 3 characters! The first 3 donors will get to provide one name each. Submissions will be via the website.
-Every 60 minutes, I will check prompts and donor amounts. Whoever has donated the most in that 60-minute period will get their prompt used next! I must use the prompt, and I must make it make sense.
-At the end of the 24 hours, whoever has donated the highest amount will pick the name for the villain of Reasons I Hate Being Single !
I will have until March 31, 2023 to fix typos, and then the resulting play will be entered into the Alberta Playwriting Competition.
