Script reading dinner this Saturday

I had a reading dinner last night for various bits and pieces I've written. A couple ten-minute plays, and some fragments I hope to incorporate into larger work. It went really well, I had a lot of very talented people show up to help me out by letting me hear how the scripts sounded when performed, which is an important part of developing a piece of theater. It also served to inspire me to write more, to want to create more for these projects and bring them further toward completeness.

It went so well that I'm having another reading dinner this Saturday. I have a major work I need to finish by this weekend, so I am using it both as a motivator to finish the first draft as well as a chance to see what it needs for the second draft. Unfortunately it has a lot of roles in it, and I prefer to double as little as possible, so I could use a few people to show up and read. So if you have a free Saturday night and would like to help me out, please let me know if you'd be interested in coming by. Basically, in return for a delicious home-cooked meal, you will accept a role to read in the script and give me feedback afterward-- what worked for you, what didn't, what you think it still needs, that sort of thing.

We're starting at 7PM, so if you can give me the pleasure of your talent and your company, I would be eternally grateful. Let me know!

Oh, man, I would love to have you! I know it's a wee bit out of your way, though... ;-)

By the way, I've been working on something I think you would be the perfect actor for. Will pass it along for your perusal when I finish it!
