Part of the Minnesota Fringe Festival. Stranded on the tarmac, Greg Tollefson contemplates the worst mistake of his career and wishes he had an air sickness bag. Substituting in a seventh-grade classroom, Greg’s wife Michelle teaches vocabulary items from Lord of the Flies and summons the great god Dionysus. Produced by Theatre Unbound.
For Worse: revised Michelle’s monologue. Not as gnarly as I feared. The subject line is one of hers.
For Worse: W-9 filled out, liability waivers all collected, everything sent off to Fringe.
For Worse: More liability waivers.
For Worse: collecting liability waivers.
For Worse: Writing to a couple of bloggers who wrote about Theatre Unbound’s Fringe show last year, hoping they will do the same this year. Still mulling over images for brochure and postcards. I keep coming back to this disturbing Greek ceramic at the Kimbell Museum in Ft. Worth. (Hmm, “Ft. Worth” sounds like “For Worse.” I’m getting punchy.) Not sure that “Beauty is truth, truth beauty” is what this particular Grecian urn has to say.
