Well here we are in the Green Room.

I smell the greasepaint.

I hear the roar of the crowd.

Welcome to the world's first online action play.

Are you in character?

The curtian rises in just a few hours. Get your makeup on. Don your costume.

Break a leg.

nice room - great set-up

just ingesting a little pre-pre.
home-made chocolate chip ice cream

we're talking incredible texture, perfect temperature, crunchy chocolate chips.

melt in your mouth, not too sweet, fresh lovingly created mixture.

hey jude!

gotchyer greasepaint?

What's your character? Do you know yet?

I'm going to be Delores de la Debois, daring debuttante, defined by double-talk, chit chattering and chiming in with challenging allegory and alliteration.

Or not.

Might be too much work.


Share some ice cream? Sounds delicious!

What should we call the play, by the way?

It's got no name.

A nameless child.

Let's name the poor soul.

A bunch of us used to write poetry playing characters at "The 'Stute."

My past is haunting me.

Ward Nine - Shock Treatment

I'm the only sane one here. I'm not like the rest of you crazies. I've been everyone from Marat to McMurphy. For me, crazy is an artform, not a condition.

They put me here, not because I was crazy, but because I was unmanageable.

Are we gonna let them treat us this way?

Go ahead and give me your medications. I won't be numbed or vacant. I love dope. Do you know why I do dope? For fun. Bring on your dope and your shock treatments. I'd rather be labeled a crazy than have a frontal lobotomy.

Don't give in to the jailers and quacks.

Let's call it that!

"Frontal Lobotomy"

I'll post a name... combine them or something

and a little explanation about how to proceed

(as though I have any idea... LOL!)

Hey judih.,....

I can make you an icon if you want.

How's this thing gonna work?

Might take the whole two hours to figure it out.

yeah! I'd love it...i was thinking of putting up an amorphous tie-dye but no, i'd love to be a puppet mask character - a puppet is the absolute best disguise - perfect...

could i have the Queen Esther looking one w/o mustache on the right-ish with the head band...
