TBD: TBD Is No More!

April 2, 2013


On Wednesday last, Wayne (the director), Jen (the actor), and I (the playwright) met to read through the mostly finished script for “To Be Determined”. It went very well.

Mosaic Moment: A Super-Secret-Bonus-Track

March 15, 2010


Brains are pretty amazing. Last Saturday, I spent the morning and afternoon updating my play, Paris is Dead. I made a lot of changes in the grammar, punctuation, and sentence structure. I also found a new, illuminating, and crucial event in the final moments of the third act. For some, grammar, punctuation, and sentence structure […]
