Zip.. and all time collapses
and we are in the middle of the end and
the beginning and spinning all at once.
For those more linear thinkers I'd like to report an inspiring week one.
Acting, Collaborative Workshop, Playwriting and Rep are all launched. Rod is back from the Berkshires where he directed Andrew Dolan's new play THE MANY MISTRESSES OF MARTIN LUTHER KING for Producer Bob Jaffe of Berkshires Playwrights Lab. Stay tuned re; Bob as he will join us the director of RECLAMATION, the solo piece we will try out for the group on July 20.
We conquered the air conditioning and the subway.
Saw new work at The Public, New Dramatists, Don't Tell Mama and the Comic Book Festival at the Brick.
We got to know each other, met Crystal Skillman and Joe Gilford, guest writers.
And had a chance to begin the process of unpacking the images and
style of their work..
and even heard the new work of our writers Benjamin Benne and Greg Palmerino.
Benjamin, our Hayakawa scholar, is working on his full length CAPTIVITY about the
the complicated relationships between an upscale working couple and their nanny. I promise Ben started this piece way before the Schwarzenegger situation came up.
Greg,a support Associate, is working on ANJELICA examining the way in which we love beasts.. the beasts in ourselves and those that surround us. Dark and theatrical , he is just beginning the work.
Jenn, our Program Admin and Gus, her trusty intern, are still standing.
Oh! And our first visual artist, Fred Hatt, visited and sketched this week as well.
And phew.. now a day of rest and back at it July 4 when EST playwright J. Holtham comes by and introduces his work to our group.
RUN SILENT RUN DEEP was on Channel 13 tonight.
Gable kept yelling, DIVE DIVE DIVE...
and in the quiet of the deep...
there lies the answer.
