Halfway, Nebraska went through a development process at Playwrights Week at the Lark in New York late September, for which I’m extraordinarily grateful.
I worked with a fabulous cast and the brilliant Lisa Rothe to open up the play, figure out what’s going on with the characters.
The other week, Steven Dietz said that when it comes to developing your play, the last 5% makes 50% of the difference. This was my goal for Playwrights Week.
I’d never been to New York. You only get one first time in New York, and it was a helluva first time. I stepped into every New York movie or television show I’d ever seen.
I’m hoping more updates will be coming soon; the semester is ending and I hope to have the time to fiddle around.
