Psyched I get to do this again (on March 7th): http://www.loadedguntheory.com/flimflam-in-space/ I’ve worked with Loaded Gun Theory before. They’re crazy, kooky and super nice. We get there on a Friday evening and stay up all night writing a short play with some ingredients (this year it will be sci-fi focused). They have a bunch...Continue reading
A photo the director Kyle Zamcheck took during the last performance. I love the mood of this photo and the shadow on the back wall that’s made entirely of pages from a book. And there were so many people packed into that small place it might have been a fire code violation (but I’m...Continue reading
The fine folks at Punchkin Repertory Theatre asked me in the summer if they could put this show on during the FronteraFest Long Fringe. I was thrilled that they asked and excited to see this play (which is challenging and particularly open-ended) come up on its feet. There was challenge after challenge (not enough...Continue reading
Here’s our short fringe entry this year. This is the very pretty program insert that Ava Love Hanna put together. Had a great time rehearsing with friends from LTYM and the performance was terrific on opening night. We got asked to come back for the Best of the Week performance on Saturday and now have...Continue reading

And then he’ll be...Continue reading

SECOND PLACE MUFFINS When I was seven or eight, my mother Nancy entered a baking contest. One of those old-fashioned ones run by...Continue reading
Oh man, what a game that was. So stressful. So amazed and impressed that the team pulled through and beat the previously undefeated kids. Way to go!...
About to head off to 7-year-old’s championship baseball game. Funny how unimportant and non-competitive all these games seem UNTIL it gets to the finals. Now I’m so anxious! They’re playing a team that beat them at both their meetings during the season, so I’m trying to keep my expectations in check. But wouldn’t it...Continue reading
… somewhere else. Fellow LTYM alum Kristin VanderHey Shaw does me a great favor and honor by hosting my motherhood-related essay on her blog here. She’s a better editor than me, and knows how to set up a site, so I’m happy and grateful to her for making it look perty. Thanks for everything, Kristin!...
Hmm, I’m beginning to enjoy the fact that my phone is buried in rice. Maybe I’ll leave it there. As long as I can. Ahh…...
