Scene and Be Seen...

As a writer, or any type of artist for that matter, it is always wonderful to have our work validated.  One of my new short plays is getting validation next week.  My heroes at The Collective Theatre Company in New York City are presenting new work at their May Fundraiser called "Scene and Be Seen," including one of my latest pieces entitled This is Temporary.

If you are in the NYC area, and are looking for a great evening of entertainment, knowing that at the same time you are supporting the arts and this innovative company, here are the details:

WHAT:    
SCENE AND BE SCENE" - THE COLLECTIVE/CROSSHATCH THEATRE COMPANY'S MAY FUNDRAISER

$10 AT THE DOOR (INCLUDES A SHOW AND YOUR FIRST DRINK, WHAT A DEAL!!!)

It's a great deal at only 10 bucks a pop and is sure to be a fun night!  So go out and support theatre, playwrights, actors and have a lot of fun doing it!  If you get the chance to go, I'd love to hear from you!

What a wonderful experience for you, Debbie! We have a thriving independent theatre community here in Knoxville, so I try to support friends who act and produce plays by going to see them. I bet it's the coolest thing to see your brainchild being acted out on stage. Go YOU, chica! :)

Thanks Dawn and Thom! Yes, it's wonderful seeing your words come alive on stage. Wish I could be there for this one, but NYC is just a bit too far these days...

Wishing you the best of success.

"Scene and Be Seen" is clever! So glad to hear one of your plays is being presented. The spoken word lives on. "This is Temporary" sounds interesting. The title alone makes me wonder, and I conjure up different scenarios in my mind. I wonder what your scenario is. Everything is temporary, is it not? Keep up the good work. Maybe some day, one of your plays will be presented by a theater company in Portland, so you can be there to see it come to life.

I re-read this post tonight because I like your writing and your posts, and it occurred to me how appropriate the title of your play is: This is Temporary. It fits right in with Harold Camping's claim that the world as we know it will end on May 21, when Jesus will return and there will be a Judgment Day. So much is temporary, but I hope the world doesn't fit into the category as soon as May 21. I hope your play gets a good response.
