In early 2009, my play Soft Serve was accepted into the Shhh... Let's Talk About Sex festival of plays. When I came to attend the festival, I met producer Kimberlyn Crawford.
In mid 2009, I attended my friend Dennis A. Allen's play, Real Estate. Kimberlyn also attended. We spoke, and she said she was working on a festival for women playwrights.
As a very politically correct man, I thought "that's wonderful." In a darker, more prominent fold of my brain, I thought, "Nah, fuck that, I'm writing a play and sending it to her."
Sometimes, following dark impulses can get you to decent places.
Kimberlyn and I had a bunch of meetings, the play I sent was reworked, and... Well, in short, so far, we've had two staged readings of The Misadventures of Olive Sukkin and a full production is in the works.
Now, I'm just waiting to hear more details. Wish the production luck.
Here's the site.
