In 2015, I wrote the full-length Preapocalyptica, which had an amazing cast for six staged readings. The 10-minute Preapocalyptica made it into this year’s Best of Playground and had a 12-show run and is my first published play. I also wrote another seven 10-minute plays, one of which was produced at PlayGround in November.
I made a total of 18 submissions.
I saw 11 evenings of theatre, including two pantomimes, plus another three readings of new works (not counting Best of PlayGround or readings of Preapocalyptica)
I failed (due to pneumonia, bronchitis, colds, strep, and Fifth disease) to finish editing Preapocalyptica. And therefore didn’t submit it in the places I’d intended to. Similarly, I failed to write a new full-length, though I have ideas kicking around all over the place. And I failed to read any plays at all, which is absurd.
It was a phenomenal year. Next post: figure out what my goals are for 2015: bigger and better!
