Dina the Burlapped Crusader: Epilogue

July 11th, 2012 No comments

So, to be totally fair, she did message me back the day after the show. Which was a super nice surprise, and removes one objection I had about the social media portion of the show.

It’s a fun show even without the “OMG YOU CAN LEAVE YOUR CELLL PHONE ON!” stuff. Go see it.

Still Alive

Wow, it’s been a long time since my last post, eh?

I’ve been busy like a bug, so I thought I’d catch all y’all up.

Act 1 of the screenplay I’ve been working on in conjunction with my writing group has been partially reworked and I’ve done a new outline we’re all happy with.

I’ve performed in another improv show. This show happened during the Fringe, so we had almost no audience, but it was still fun.

The Fringe rocked this year!! Normally I see at least one clunker in my travels, but everything I saw was at least solid, and a couple of brilliant pieces stood out: The LOVE Octagon and The Godot Cycle. Unfortunately, I didn’t get to spend as much time Fringing as I would have liked. Other commitments, and so on.

I need to get a lot of writing done in the next month and a half. Hopefully I can sneak some performing time in there as well.

That’s been my update for the past while. Hope any human reading this is doing well.

(This got stuck on my smartphone by mistake, so I am publishing way late. If you were involved in either production and read this, my apologies.)
(No, this isn’t a plural reference to my blog.)

Powerful play with five very talented women. Based on interviews with Halifax prostitutes, but the script is written well and it never descends into preaching. And the five performances bring it to life.

 Playing at the Toronto Fringe and then moving to the Hamilton Fringe. See it in at least one of those cities.

The Fringe Starteth

I think there are three shows I need/want to see. And then there are umpteen invites on Facebook from people who can now somehow send me invites. From people who wouldn’t know me if I met them on the street.

Support theatre, yes. Give up all my time to supporting it, well, only if I’m directly involved in a production. How selfish is that?

Still, I’m supporting at least three shows, which is more than your average X-Box live teenage gamer goes to see. So cut me some slack, people. I’m only one man in a big city!
