Feeling Round Down? Say no more. Let’s Round Up.
Procrastinator’s Special: Several weeks in one.
Week 3: Jeremy Wine and his band of merry Rewrites
Week 3 of our full-length reading cycle continued with a constantly-changing read of Pre-Fabricated Homes, a play about iffy construction, having sex with national parks, and a man curiously called “Jeff”. Jeremy Wine’s play is the best play ever written in the known world.
Full disclaimer: Jeremy Wine wrote most or all of this.
Week 4: Fearsome Frank, by Tim Duncheon, and his pocket pal, Marbles.
We were whisked away, island to island, to the year 1589. Fearsome Frank is most likely a true story, or semi-true, but it’s certainly musical and pants-immolatingly funny. A case of mistaken identity leads inevitably to sword and word play, the immaculate Concepcion, and a spot marked by an X. It’s a musical with depth.
Week 5: Exposing Yourself in Public
The first of several Submission Salons, Lather, Rinse, Repeat’s version of Career Night. We came, we whiteboarded, we solicited ourselves. It wasn’t pretty. We are forming a nice little playwright’s helper system for professional development that will one day be shared with the world at large, solving all of American Theatre’s problems. And we ate pizza.
Week 6: L’Aubergiste by the always happenin’ Natalie Wilson
This house has a mad crush. It likes you, Jeanine. It really, really likes you. Jeanine. Sure, Bernadette has been going steady with the house for the past trillion years, but it was a good run. Jeanine. This house really digs you, if you know what I mean.
Meanwhile, In a Land Not Unlike This Land…
Lather, Rinse, Repeat playwrights have all kinds of frothy action out there. Not the least of which: Caps Lock Theatre’s Pussyfest III: The Reckoning. This year’s installment features a heady brew of LRR playwrights, including Tim Duncheon, Tim Errickson, Isaac Rathbone, Mila Golubov, Natalie Wilson, Jeremy Wine, and Jen Browne. The line-up this year is stellar–get your tickets for November 2nd, 3rd, and the 10th or you’ll be THAT PERSON that DIDN’T GO. Don’t be THAT PERSON. Buy tickets at THIS PLACE.
This is not a drill.
Furthermore, our most beloved Isaac Rathbone will have his LRR-developed play The Gnome produced at the estimable LORT-tastic Barter Theatre early next year. That’s a world premiere for those of you keeping score at home. Many more details to come.
Next Time, Whether As You Like It Or Not:
Issac “Ike” Rathbone brings in his latest Full-length “Fully” Play for a cast of Seasoned “Salty” Actors to read. This is about that time of year when we stop showering. Or maybe that’s just me. I like art.
