Play # 1: research mode

There’s almost nothing I can tell you about this play that won’t give the entire thing away. But what I can tell you is that it’s fairly research heavy.

This is what I gathered from the e-mail (facts may have been adjusted slightly): Hi, sorry… I just woke up (insert emoticon) I was battling unicorns in my dreams with a saber […]

One last night cap…

Before I go and dream of flying goldfish and a talking whale named Gus, I leave you with a few more memorable quotes and moments from the evening… * Mazen Winner Elizabeth Heffron drew the final show for night one – 3 Men, 2 Women * “Andy Jensen is drawing for Paul Mullin.” –Shawn Belyea (followed by a delightful chorus of boos which is the only appropriate response if someone is unable to attend the meeting.) * In the above […]
