Making this show good

My life is preparing Mrs. Hawking. It's a good life, one that I'm enjoying-- this has really been good for my outlook --but it takes a ton of time. But I hate neglecting my blog for any reason.

I like this play. I am proud of it, and I think other people will like it too. When I first went into the project, I was overwhelmed by the idea of having to do so much in such a short amount of time. As I was editing the play for production I didn't feel very good about it. It was partially the negativity of my mindset, but also partially because I'd just come off of the Vivat Regina Bare Bones reading and that script is better than the first. It makes sense, in a way; it was written a year later, after I'd had more practice and become a better writer. It's also significantly funnier, which I've decided needs to remain a part of Mrs. Hawking stories going forward.

It's certainly not a bad thing if Mrs. Hawking get better with every installment. But that doesn't mean the original isn't good. It IS good, and even if I couldn't tell by reading it, watching the rehearsals convinces me. How a piece of theater actually plays is the true measure of its worth, and seeing this story come to life, with the visual dimension adding in so much more meaning and layers, makes me believe in it. It's a good play I wrote, and it's going to be a great production to watch.
