Last night, at the San Diego Repertory Theater, I had the almost disturbingly pleasurable pleasure of watching a reader’s theater presentation of my mini, two-person one-act play, Mankind: The Preview.
Afterwards, the enthralled audience (I think they were enthralled; the tears in my eyes were keeping things fuzzy) asked me questions that would have left Bluto feeling like a literary genius. How did I come to write something so great? Do I have a degree in theology? What other plays have I had produced? Was that me in the back who kept clapping and laughing like a hyena?
It was all quite gratifying. I am now developing that one-act into a full-fledged, three-act play.
I believe that I have been seriously chomped on by the theater bug. What big teeth it has!
