In January, I mentioned completing a short script which I submitted to festivals. Well, I am pleased to say that I recently found out my play has been accepted to one and will be presented as a staged reading in early March. For those who may be in the area of Kitchener-Waterloo, please feel free to come celebrate International Women's Day with She Speaks on March 8th, 2009. I will be on location for a talk-back with the other directors and playwrights after the show. Donations at the door will go to the the Women's Crisis Services of the Waterloo Region and the International Centre for Women Playwrights.
This is a very exciting time for me, as it is the first time someone else will be producing my work. Though I was offered the opportunity to direct the piece, I honestly prefer to put it entirely in someone else's hands and see what come sout. I look forward to sitting back, watching the audience, taking notes, and getting feedback from everyone involved.
If you can make it out, let me know, I would love to see you there!
