Default Short Play to be Staged

Hi Friends--

I just learned that my short (really short) play, "Rerun," has been selected for the 2019 iteration of Santa Cruz's venerable 8 Tens at 8 Festival. As the title indicates, the plays (there are 16, in fact; two sets of 8 performed in repertory) are all 10 minutes or shorter.

They take submissions each year, by the way, through the end of June (for a modest fee).

Apparently I'll be hearing from "my director" soon... If you're near Santa Cruz in January or February, 2019, please consider checking it out!

Very excited,

--Simon

Best,

That's exciting news, Simon. I hope you love what the director and cast do with your script.

Thanks, Guys. Oooh, roses. And, Chris, I hope so, too--but if not, at least it'll be over in 10 minutes. Actually, it will be exciting to see what they do with it...

Wonderful news, Simon.

When J.D. (our John) Smith had a short play staged in London, he came over with his wife, and I met them at the theatre with my friend; we watched the performance together and it was great.

Sadly I can't do the same thing in reverse and come to Santa Cruz, but you can tell us all about it. You must, in fact!

Congratulations

Jayne

Congratulations, Simon. I hope you like what the director and actors do with your play. It is fascinating to have one's work interpreted in a different format. I was lucky enough to hear a couple of my poems set to music in the past year, and relinquishing control to someone else (both composers cut and slightly changed the poems) was worth it in order to see the unexpected new things the music brought to the words.
