First full-length reading


Everything has finally come into place for the reading of Bones.  It’s my first full-length play. Well, the first one that I’ll admit to.  This play, along with an earlier one-act, constituted my portfolio for admission to the UNO creative writing program, and to see it live with an audience feels like a big deal.

I entered the piece in a new play festival locally, and it didn’t get chosen for the festival, but director Heather Noelle Robinson came to me afterwards and said she’d like to see it done.  I put her in touch with Rachel Bakker, the new play administrator at CLTC, and they worked out a deal.

Casting took much longer than anticipated, because the number of good male actors is apparently much smaller than the number of female actors, and it took time to find a male lead, plus Heather was directing several other pieces both here in California and on the east coast.
