There was beer and chips and, yes, a bloody pinata. A grand old time. I will miss meeting my fellow writers on a semi-regular basis. I will miss the pinata. Blood Pinata is:
stephanie del rosso
amina henry (moi)
Actors Leta Renee-Alan and Sam Soghor in my contribution to the pinata.
Me and this director kid Ben Kamine.
Actress Hannah Cabell does an awesome spoken word / lounge act thing as we all “wait for Terry at Terry’s surprise birthday party”.
This is the group project I did with my Clubbed Thumb Early Career Writers’ Group buddies.
Blood Pinata (or Party) by Blood Pinata (aka Clubbed Thumb’s Early-Career Writers Group)
a site-specific performance
