*Lily & the Apple Seed* Reading
On October 1, the *Lily* cast and director Stacy Pendergraft gave me the luxury of a full reading of the play. This reading is very early in the writing process, and I really appreciated their willingness to share their time and talents. We were also so lucky to have Judy Goss and Cheri Devol and her family in attendance. Judy provided great playwrighting insight, and Cheri gave us wonderful technical ideas. Right now, I am letting their feedback percolate in my mind. I intend to revise again after my Horace Mann project goes up on Nov 2nd. Until then....I'll keep you updated on Horace Mann and, at some point, I'm going to write up a post on the devising project I directed at Hendrix in September. Busy, busy in the best of ways!
