write about this one, John Keats, I dare you

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.

#1MPF: The organizers sent out information about the groups (they call them “clumps”) of scripts in which my 2 will be included. One clump will be directed by Shannon Cron, whom I’ve met and whose show I’ll be going to see this week; the other by Shannon Twohy, whom I don’t yet know. I know most of the playwrights in these two clumps, some by name and reputation, others by Smackdown, yet others from other TU projects.

For Worse: Met with Miriam and Sadie to discuss ideas for the set. Sadie has good leads on office chairs we can get for free, which she can turn into a row of airline seats, because she’s awesome. Miriam suggests having a whiteboard for Michelle to write on, making two monologues I’ve written this summer in which a woman writes on a white- or chalkboard. Photos from the aquarium look like they won’t work for the season brochure and print materials.

The Last Game: Set an appointment with Heather H. to talk about the latest draft.
