THANK YOU to everyone who attended the reading of Alex and Michael and Hannah last night. A play isn’t a play without an audience, it’s truly impossible to know if a play works until you can hear the reaction to it, so you will be a huge help in improving the script, and getting itContinue reading “Thank you to the audience!”
We had to make a casting change, but the reading is still a go! Our Alex will now be Andres Moreno! See you, in person, or online, on October 17.
Here’s to confirm that the reading of Alex and Michael and Hannah will be live-streamed, here, at 7:30 pm Mountain Time on October 17, 2021. Tune in and behold!
The last three weeks…not so much. I’ve cancelled going to shows, going to a board meeting (some secretary I’ve been), and had to force myself to go to work, because I need to pay rent. Spending sleepless nights lying perfectly still, yet feeling my abdomen being wrung like a soaked towel. My gynecologist assured meContinue reading “Today is a good day in Endometriosis Awareness Month”
I can’t do it in 24 hours, because I work until 5 pm. Yes, the 2nd Annual Writeathon begins at noon tomorrow! Last year’s was…bonkers. Fellow writers made velcro out of their beards and resorted to lacing of warm drinks (and then just tossing the mix altogether and drinking straight out of the mickey). Oh,Continue reading “I’m writing a play in 18 hours or less!”
I actually have PLAY NEWS. The play I wrote at APN’s Writeathon, which I’ve been babbling about since last September, will get its first, full, public reading! Ladies and gentlemen, it’s The Ugly Princess!! It’ll be at Script Salon, put on by APN and PGC: Holy Trinity Anglican Church, 10037 84 Ave NW, Edmonton, ABContinue reading “the Ugly Princess cometh!”
Since I’ve blogged about my endometriosis, and I had a minor revelation this weekend, it may be time to talk about my clinical depression. Yes, I’m a bag of laughs. Once again, I have no idea how long I’d officially been depressed. I was diagnosed by my GP in 2001, and took citalopram and wentContinue reading “Have you ever been so depressed you forgot to be happy?”
Okay, I’M having gelato. You can have whatever you want. The intrepid executive director of Alberta Playwrights Network is going to be in Edmonton for Wordshed this weekend, and Friday night, June 20, a bunch of we playwrights are getting together at Block 1912 on Whyte Ave. I’ll be there, and if you’re cool, soContinue reading “come say hi and have GELATO!”
In the great sea of the internet, anyway. This is what happened on Twitter today: I have been waiting to see this film since last July. I tweeted this musing randomly (what else is Twitter but random musing?) on my lunch break from my day job. And get a reply from what I incredulously assumedContinue reading “THE WHEATLEYS KNOW WHO I AM.”
For various reasons, I haven’t been writing lately. I have a new(ish) day job, which I go in to early and sometimes stay late at…and occasionally, it’s going into the weekends. I’m enjoying it. It’s a lot of responsibility, and at 39, I’m beginning to feel like an… adult. I’ve rearranged a number of otherContinue reading ““So you want to be a writer?””
