Words made flesh.Posted: August 10, 2011
I just came back from talking with my wonderful director, Lucius Robinson (here on the right), about running auditions for What Every Girl Should Know. We’re casting almost a year in advance. And the Durham area being what it is, we could probably cast the show four times over and be completely happy. Too many awesome women.
For last week’s reading, I cast women who, for one reason or another, wouldn’t be able to be in the actual show. I watched them read my words. By the end of the play, they were sitting on the edge of their seats. And then they stayed to debate what it all meant. I couldn’t be luckier. So may I publicly give thanks to the brilliant Larissa Kaul, Tracey Coppedge, Meredith Sause, Annie Zipper and Dana Marks for helping me map the first terrain. I am spoiled for collaborators.
