April Updates

About a week and half ago, I put together a reading of Small Steps to raise money for the Hill Country Ride for AIDS.

In the meantime, I’ve been hard at work on my new play for middle school students – And Then, She Picks Up the Sword – in which a prince and princess do not want to get married, and subsequently run off to the woods.  I adore this Renaissance pastoral painting – as the boy with flowers in his hair teases the young maiden, she looks away (at the word “sword,” because I’m cheeky that way).

We took tropes from Shakepeare’s comedies and used them, making a play that both parodies and deploys these elements…

Before that, I have my play Knitted, which will be part of ScriptWorks’ Out of Ink: Lost and Found. 

Directed by the Austin Chronicle’s 2017 Director of the Year (and a dear friend) Rudy Ramirez, Knitted is a re-imagination of Pinocchio, in which Geppettois a gay man who makes a puppet after a one-night stand, which subsequently comes alive. I’m hoping to turn this one into a full-length play…

A couple announcements are coming soon… Nothing earth shattering, but things that are delightful.
