Excellent! Congratulations, 68! .... Wish I were closer so I could come watch! Any possibility of video recording it for sharing online?

I doubt it but sometimes they post clips. Many theaters now have their own youtube channel. I'll see when I get there to watch and see what's up w/that.

Excellent!!

Looks like you got top billing. Or is that just random.

I'll bet it's going to be smashing!! Tell us about it, please?

Thanks for sharing this --

I think I'm first b/c my play starts w/a number. Seriously.

It's a play about the early onset of Alzheimer's. A husband recognizing oddities in his wife's behavior, pointing them out to her and she not willing to admit to them, no matter how hard he tries.

Oh my, 68. I'll bet your script is something to behold, and I hope the actors do it justice! Your subject matter strikes at my heart deeply, as I know it does yours. I wish you success and satisfaction that you portrayed a painful difficult scenario in a sensitive intelligent way.

Thanks, Shadow. Play's not until June. I've only heard this one in my head up to this point.

I've had a good spring...have another play coming a bit sooner, in April, more of a staged reading. It's a longer play, about 25 minutes, that I expanded from an earlier 10 minute play. It's about a college professor and a an older, returning student, who both quote Emily Dickinson to each other while discussing a possible relationship (more her than him b/c he's married).

I've seen the play three times but this will be the first time in the longer format so I'm excited. A staged reading is pretty much for audience members to offer suggestions about what they liked or didn't like. Kind of like critiquing a poem, I guess. The actors have script in hand, not necessarily having all lines memorized. It's very helpful to a guy like me.
