On the getting performances front, I've gotten another small bit of good news. In the Berkshires, specifically based in Williamstown, there is a public access TV show called PlayCafe. They choose a script and document the process of giving it a table reading on their show. I am happy to say that one of my ten minute plays, The Triumph of Law, has been selected. I met with Ms. Patti Cassidy, the creative director, last week and she explained the process to me. Her people will find me some actors, and I will go up to Williamstown, MA for a weekend to act as director, and they will film the process of staging the reading. This should happen sometime in April. I'm not sure what kind of audience they get, and my compensation is only a copy of the DVD and whatever exposure I get from it, but I'm glad for anything that will possibly help get my work more widely recognized.

The Triumph of Law is a pieced based on The Stand, centered on an event in the backstory of PC Carson Hill. He is one of my favorite characters in that game, as I gave him a rich personal history and an interesting inner struggle. Since it captures only one moment in Carson's journey, I think this piece has the potential for further development. Mr. Hill has a pretty cool arc, if I may say so myself. I could see a full-length play about his life. Perhaps I will work on outlining what would happen in that play, based on what I worked out in that larp. You have no idea how pleased I am that I created so much story in this game that it has taken on a life of its own in this way.

Of course! Just let me know. Even if I'm not here, my family would be happy to have you.
