Still writing…

I can’t believe I haven’t talked at all about the readings at Peep Show this past Sunday. Simply amazing. The number of people who told me, after hearing the first ten minutes of Marathon/Sprint…”That is MY mother…oh my God!” Hee hee hee! The actors loved doing it, the audience loved hearing it, ALL of the plays read were terrific, a great day!

Skirts Afire as a whole did wonderfully. I look forward to being part of it next year too!

So; more writing to be done. I follow a group called New York Neo-Futurists on Twitter, and have participated almost every week in their Twitterplays for a while now. You get a prompt, and you write a play — it can only be tweet-length, and that has to include the hashtag so the world knows you’ve written it! We’re now on Twitterplay number 204 (#tp204). This week, probably by dumb luck — submitted first? — my tweet of a play appears on the NY Neo Tumblr first! All the tweet-plays are always fascinating. I really recommend keeping up on them.

Toga & Burlesque Party Details here. Prizes! Auction! Dancers! FUN!

So, fans of stories of love and hate, it’s only a week until the fabulous party to end them all, and here are some details of what you can expect.

With every ticket will come a chance for amazing Door Prizes — gift cards for free groceries and a fantastic Edmonton pub, lovely bath and beauty products — “smelly stuff” as our Cupid would say! — and a few fascinating handmade fascinators are all up for grabs.

For the Silent Auction we have pole dance lessons from Venus herself, the beautiful Nicole Grainger, plus a dance lesson from our ultra-cool colleague Gino Akbari, and a professional photo shoot.  Each will be available to the highest bidder.

And don’t forget the best 50 / 50 draw, ever.  What makes it so great?  Buy enough tickets, and you get a HUG.

And then, of course, there’s our LIVE SHOW.  Members of the magnificent Capital City Burlesque Troupe, songs by our own Nicole and Maria, and enticing previews of both Stories.  Tickets available at the door, $10.  Ten bucks!  And Doug can vouch for HOW GOOD the Guinness is.  So join the party at the Irish Club, June 15.  Doors will open at      7 pm, show begins at 8!

Toga & Burlesque Party!

Get an early taste of Stories of Love & Hate at our Toga & Burlesque theme party!  You’ll see previews of both A Hate Story and A Love Story, a bit — just a little bit — of burlesque, there’ll be a fabulous raffle, a 50 / 50 draw, and then we dance!  DJ, light show, frivolity!  Tickets are $10 and available in advance at the party venue, the Irish Sports & Social Club at 12546 126 Street NW, Edmonton.  Show begins at 8 pm on June 15, 2012, and continues into the wee hours!
