One of my pieces was accepted for performance as part of Hovey Summer Shorts! It's a festival of new ten-minute plays held in a little theater right here in Waltham by a theater group called the Hovey Players. I saw this festival last year and was kicking myself that I'd never known it was there as a possibility to submit to, so I'm really glad to have jumped on the chance this time around. The piece of mine they picked is called Last Shot, and it is a blending of two scenes written during 31 Plays in 31 Days, this one also called Last Shot and this one called Don't Tell Anyone. Both of them were written with the intention of helping me get a leg up on scriptwriting for the Lame Swans graphic novel, and feature the two lead female characters Lise and Marina.

I kind of like the idea that the story is able to cross media like this. It's even crossed my mind that Lame Swans could possibly be adapted into a full-length play or screenplay or something. It would probably be a difficult play to produce, as it would require actors who were also trained ballet dancers. But I think it would call for some interesting representational theatricality to distinguish the transitions between Lise's present at the lake, and the flashbacks to the pieces of the story that happen in the past. And dance is so visually rich I think it would make for a very engaging show to experience.

Well, this summer at Hovey I'll get the first glimpse of what it would look like onstage! Hopefully it will work as well as I imagine.
