About two weeks from now, my work will be featured in the Sixth Annual Chicago One-Minute Play Festival. The event will feature sixty second plays by seventy female-identifying artists, and from the read-through rehearsal I attended, I can tell it is going to be an absolute blast! So many stories about community will be shared over the two nights of performances, and you won't want to miss out on all the laughs, cleverness, and poignant points. Tickets can be purchased here. I will be attending both shows, so come and say hello!
I am also happy to announce that I have taken up a new writing gig as a reviewer for the Chicago theatre site, Theatre By Numbers. I have wanted to get back into the criticism game for a long while now, and learn more about the Chicago scene (as there's always more to learn), and this provides the perfect opportunity. Each week, reviewers are randomly assigned a set of shows via game dice, and then we post reviews of those shows within three days time. It allows for a great variety in terms of audience experience, and I have really enjoyed flitting across Chicago to different venues and different companies to see local theatre. So far, I have written about three productions -- Mosque Alert, Trash, and The Women of Lockerbie -- but there's always more to come, and I hope to post those reviews as they happen, along with any other neat news coming down the pike.
