So I’ve got this one-act (60-70 minutes) comedy I’ve been sitting on for a while, and ScriptWorks is going to host a reading of it with some wonderful actors on Sunday, May 19th, at 6:30pm at Hyde Park Theatre.
It’s free, open to the public, there will be wine and snacks, AND the piece is funny. At least when I read it to myself I snicker a bit. Little laughs out loud (llol), that’s how you know it’s working.
Anyway, I’ll at least amuse myself. My main goals are to:
- Gauge reaction
- See how people feel about the way I handle gender issues
- Get a sense for whether it’s something that’s produceable down the line
- Drink wine and snacks
I might have a link to post with more info in a bit, but here’s an initial blurb I put together:
On the heels of a difficult breakup, Rebecca decides to hit the road to visit–and reconnect with–three boyfriends from her past (one from kindergarten, one from middle school and one from college). It’s a bumpy ride, but a teacher from long ago provides a comfortable lesson along the way.
