Thank you to the audience!

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!”

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!

Making Lemonade

First, here’s hoping all TaB fans are staying safe and healthy in this time of covid. Second, we’re surrounded by very sour lemons. For the time being, the Edmonton Fringe is still scheduled to go ahead. And in the meantime, as a BIG teaser, playwright Heather is writing a second version of the script, toContinue reading “Making Lemonade”

A good start in a new direction – #film pre-production

I didn’t expect to be accepted to this residency in Vallauris, AT ALL. It’s primarily for ceramicists, because that’s what the town has been known for, for centuries. But, it sounded interesting, and I’d never been to France, and well…I had ideas for movies, after having written plays since high school, and this seemed like a goodContinue reading “A good start in a new direction – #film pre-production”

Today, I’m out of love with #playwriting. It’s like a bad day in a long term #relationship.

I realised something this morning, on a sunny day in the south of France. It’s a bit of a whinge. But it’s also a bit scary for me, and makes me sad. I just sent off an application for a playwriting venture. One should keep track of how many competitions, initiatives, etc, one enters…but I’ve givenContinue reading “Today, I’m out of love with #playwriting.

“Someone’s going to blow that place up soon.”

Said to me, in 2004, by a friend I hadn’t seen in ages. It was a few days before I flew to London, England, United Kingdom.  I answered him, “That’s why I have to go see it now.”  I got to see Big Ben, and Southbank, and the Inns of Chancery.  The next year, LondonContinue reading ““Someone’s going to blow that place up soon.””

Why I love theatre technicians.

Having sent out what I believe to be a pretty kick-butt play, I’m now at the hard part: waiting. Waiting to see if anyone else with any pull to put the play onstage thinks it’s remotely as good as I think it is. I used to wonder if writing is what I should be doing,Continue reading “Why I love theatre technicians.”
