Play #1 in Rehearsal


It’s early in the rehearsal process and I missed the table work but Mr. Hyland is so strong and deep-voiced and assertive as well as sensitive and thoughtful to this trio of lovely, talented actresses as they begin blocking/beat work.  They’re laughing!  OH so nice and fun to see the fun of this 14/48.  I’m getting weepy.  I love them all.

Day 2 – Writers and Directors


Everyone looks surprisingly perky.  It’s going to be fun. Oooo – I’m eavesdropping on the director/playwright meetings.  So fun to listen to Tina LaPlant (playwright) and Tim Hyland (director) reading her play aloud and discussing – so intense.  I think I heard her say “Sister Pig.” Maggie Lee, The Picture of Inspiration, Suzanne Cohen Moving on to Suzanne Cohen and Maggie Lee who are doing drawings of the space.  Suzanne looking for guidance from coffee drinking Maggie who has a […]

Hyland Pulls Reversal… Stuns Crowd!


Tim Hyland is known for his rally cry, “8pm… OPENING NIGHT ENERGY! 10pm… CLOSING NIGHT ENERGY!” This is a rally cry which, if you’ve ever done 14/48, you know well. However, Hyland pulled a stunning reversal tonight during the 7pm meeting saying, “Our 8pm show is our CLOSING and our 10:30pm show is our OPENING so that we carry it in our hearts forever.” Although shocked at the switch, the crowd did as Hyland commanded… only time will tell how […]

All Company Meeting


At 7:00pm the company gathered for final words of instruction, reprimand, wisdom, and encouragement. Reminder: Everyone to clean up your own trash. And our mandate from Tim Hyland: Tonight at 8:00pm, bring your closing night energy; tonight at 10:30pm, bring your opening night energy… so that the show will live on in eternity. Break a leg everyone! And if you’re reading at home, get your butt over to ACT and see some theatre!

TECH – The Guitar Case by Maggie Lee


“What really separates 14/48 from other play festivals is the band.” – Tim Hyland This band is incredible and compliments the energy of 14/48 so completely. As we move from the tech of play #1 to #2, I’m being absolutely captivated by the by a duet sung by Susan McIntyre and JJ Moon. 3:53 and we’re onto TECH for Celene Ramadan’s Jeff Becomes Her.

JOHN FARRAGE DURING THE ACTOR DRAW… SURPRISE! WE PUT JELL-O IN THE TIN! THE JELL-O TIN SEEMED LIKE SO MUCH FUN THAT ERIN KRAFT HAD TO TRY IT OUT! TIM HYLAND SCOLDING ERIN, “NOW YOU GOT JELL-O ON THE PAUL MULLIN SCRIPT!”

A moment with Erin Kraft…


SLOOP: Erin, how would you sum up your play? ERIN KRAFT: A touching exploration of human relationships. The uncertainties of ourselves and the uncertainties of other people. (all spoken in a breathy voice) SLOOP: How about your cast? ERIN KRAFT: I have a BAD ASS CAST! As happens in the staff room, this set off a spiral of absurd responses… TIM HYLAND: You have BAD ASS GAS? ERIN KRAFT: Yes, my cast has to moon people and I may need […]

Loud noises…


PLAY 2 “Dude looks like a lady… you’ll know what I mean later.” – Lisa Viertel (ACTOR) PLAY 3 “Pull the audience into this world by finding the stillness… finding the danger of this world and how we can live in it.” – Carol Roscoe (DIRECTOR) PLAY 5 “Word to your mother.” – Troy Fischnaller (ACTOR) PLAY 6 “I think we should do an improv game.” – John Farrage (DIRECTOR) FROM THE STAFF ROOM “Good thing I’m not tired because […]

New keg…


Tim Hyland informed me that the keg has been emptied around the same time that Carol Roscoe informed me that my sweater would no longer be starring in show #1. Apparently they (the designers) found a better sweater. That’s show business… FIRST SHOW IN 15 MINUTES!
