Soooo, the reading of The Secret Keeper with Shakespeare’s Sister Company went well yesterday, even though there’s nothing that can make me cringe more than a reading of a first draft – well, maybe spiders coud make me cringe more, like, if one was crawling on me. Slugs, too, are pretty cringy…ANYWAY, the reading went fine and now I just need to go back and ‘fix’ the plethora of problems in the script that the reading revealed. Good times.
Today I found out that I’m a Core Apprentice at The Playwrights Center in Minneapolis which I’m super excited about EVEN THOUGH I won’t be able to go to Minneapolis for a workshop there next summer. Apparently the #1 Apprentice got THAT honor and I’m #2 or #3 (which is still cool because there’s only three of us out of all the playwrights they could have picked). As #2 or #3, I get paired with a NYC-based playwright as a mentor, a year membership at The Playwrights Center, mention on their website, and BRAGGING RIGHTS, which is always something to aim for.
