I just got a message from the Manhattan Repertory Theater, informing me that the piece I submitted to them, "The Late Mrs. Chadwick," has been accepted for performance in their Winter One Act Competition! Yaaaay! This playwriting thing is finally starting to happen!


It begins in mid January and goes on from there, depending how far the piece gets in the competition. I would love to just pack up the production of Mrs. Chadwick we did this fall and take it there, but unfortunately there are just too many dates, separated too far apart, that we would have to be in Manhattan to make this feasible. Even if I could rearrange things to make it work, which I can't, it would be too much to ask of Frances, Lenny, and Sam. So what I'm doing is seeking out someone based in New York to helm up the running of the production locally for me. I've put out several calls, including one to the Manhattan Repertory list serve, and I am happy to say several people have expressed interest. I'm hoping to nail it down before tomorrow, to get things rolling as early as possible.

I've never had anyone else direct my work for me before. I've been working to get to the point where I don't have to be personally responsible for all aspects of production in order to get a play put on, so this is encouraging. I've even got real actors sending me headshots and resumes! Those I will pass on to the director, who will do the casting and rehearsing and all related arranging, but it is super exciting to see people are interested.

Crossing my fingers that everything gets worked out!
