Words made flesh.Posted: August 10, 2011 Filed under: Uncategorized 3 Comments
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.
What a fantastic evening! Thanks for allowing me to be a part of it!
Monica! This sounds so thrilling. I love reading about you making plays.
Megan, I so wish you were here to be in it. There’s going to be a lot of DANCE, choreographed by my sister Clare! I’m thinking traditional Catholic liturgical dance meets Isadora Duncan…on speed.
