I took another class last weekend called Put It On It’s Feet where I wrote a short play, 15 minutes called Character Assassination: A Guide to Killing Your Literary Darlings, Literally. On Nov 6th I read it aloud and en-acted all the parts by using pictures glued to Popsicle sticks. It took place upstairs at Betty’s. It has become one of my favorite places to do readings its such a great space. I think there were 4 audience members and 2 other workshop participants and the instructor, Anne Marie Scheffler.
I submitted the pages to be read at Nov 13th’s Toronto Cold Reads. I didn’t read. I wanted to hear it from the audiences perspective in an attempt to be objective. It did help me think of a bunch of ways to improve upon what was read and make my intentions clearer.
The plan is to expand the show into a full length play with music. The play pretty much incorporates all the various shows I’ve been working on and gives a scene or song from each. I do of course plan on finishing the rest of my projects but I’ll
focus take a look over here for a little while longer.
