A few months ago, a fellow playwright and champion, Bixby Elliot, invited me to join a writing group that he heads with another lovely playwright, Erin Mallon, called the Brooklyn Generator. The premise of the group is that they gather 6 playwrights in a season to each write a play in one month, thus the name "Generator." While we have yet to meet in Brooklyn, the name seems right since having said yes, I am now desperately writing a new play that will get a reading on Sunday.
Because of the timing of a few other projects, the reality of the situation is that I will have written a play in three weeks. So ha! I'm lucky because I have a terrific cast of actors and a wonderful director supporting this creative process. May Adrales directs the fantastic and funny Cindy Cheung, Sanjiv Jhaveri, Annie McNamara, Jeffrey Omura, CJ Wilson, and Shaun Bennet Fauntleroy.
If you want to hear what a true first draft sounds like, come on out on Sunday and have a listen. Admission is free, although having a drink at the bar is encouraged!
