Thanks, Jim. No, I'm not much of an actor--but this is an interesting notion, not least because my little play is more than a tad autobiographical (but not completely so...). It would be fun to play the "other guy," but I'm way too old for either part.

Auditions are early September, btw, which I mention just in case any Santa Cruz-area actors are reading this...

Way to go, Simon! If I were only in the area, I would be in the audience.

Sorry for the bump (not sorry), but this is opening tonight! There is an A set of plays tonight and a B set (including mine) tomorrow (i.e. Fri 1/4 and Sat 1/5, respectively).

Actors' Theatre Co.
Center Stage Theatre in Downtown Santa Cruz, CA

I'm supposed to be there but won't be there tonight due to a family circumstance. Will try hard to get there tomorrow for my own 10 minutes of glory, but we'll see. If I miss it and any Eratosphere members get there, please tell me how great it was (suggestion: very great indeed).

Cheers,

--Simon

Best break-a-leg wishes to your cast. If the script is as good as the best poems in Lesser Magi, you could have a hit on your hands.

What an astonishingly kind thing to say, Chris. Thank you. For reasons I can't post much about (am fine--family member's illness...), I am increasingly unlikely to see the play. But I have spies on the ground to report to me...

I hope your spies have a hidden camera, Simon!

Seriously, though, it's great to hear of successes like this... and I hope your relative makes a speedy recovery.

I'd love to see your play... and with Chris in the lead role. (Did you know he's an actor?)
