It’s been a pretty crazy month. I started a new job, had a birthday, found out some awesome news about a play of mine that’s currently in development with Budding Theatre (more on that soon), and had two plays in L’amour et la mort.
And just when I thought it was done, I find out that three more of my plays are bouncing around stages across the world.
This is the second time I’ve been included in Short+sweet Manila, with Last Drinks taking part in the 2014 festival.
The third play, Smart Jimmy, Slow Bob, has been included in Shorter+Sweeter in Dubai on October 29. This show looks very interesting. It consists of five winning plays from various Short+Sweet festivals in one night. The other writers on the bill include Alex Broun, Kate Toon, Angie Farrow, and Tim Hehir – a fine list of folks to be sharing the stage with.
Honestly, I had no idea either of these productions were happening until about a week ago. In the 10-minute play scene, this will happen from time to time. Not that I am complaining. I’m just stoked that these little plays are still floating about, and hopefully giving some people a few laughs.
After all, that’s exactly why I write them!
