The memory palace.Posted: May 11, 2011 Filed under: Uncategorized 5 Comments
I’ve been at the Elsewhere Museum for two weeks, and I finally have a script ready for The Memory Palace. It wasn’t easy to write. I’m used to writing snappy banter and making people laugh. But that’s easy for me. This one’s going to be just me, all alone, playing my mother, conducting a tour of the museum as if it’s the house I grew up in, in complete darkness, save for flashlights that the audience members hold. And did I mention I’ll be blindfolded? Not entirely, but enough to approximate the state of my mother’s eyesight in 1994.
Like I said, not easy to write.
Bst of Luck with this project! Jeanne
Best of Luck with this project! Jeanne
This sounds wonderful. Congratulations on making it happen! We’ll get started on that plaque of yours for OHSS. 😉
This sounds absolutely shocking, wonderful, strange, and beautiful. Wishing you so much luck for it. Wish I could be there. Merde!
I so look forward to someday being able to see a play written by Monica Byrne. 🙂
@Jeanne–thank you so much 🙂 I owe you a letter!
@Elizabeth–I miss you guys! I’m back in Durham in late June…till then, I’ll just have to dream about your smiling faces and cafe con leches…
@Meghan–And I can’t wait to see you dance someday, in person. Thank you for the warm wishes 🙂
