The stars aligned and decided to give us another go at the Edmonton Fringe Festival. Last year I was lucky enough to write and direct the one act It's Complicated. During this time I was able to meet some new people, work with some great creators and, my favourite part, entertain audiences-- people I have never met before. It's one thing to entertain your Mom or Grandma or something, but some random person who may hate you if they actually knew you? That's a rush.
That is once again my goal as I begin to write my first draft for the 2014 Festival. I have two ideas that I like equally and I am going to meet that problem in a roundabout way and write both of them. I'll use this blog occasionally to get my thoughts out of my head as the process goes. After all, blogs are essentially talking to yourself in the 21st Century. Then when the Summer comes and we start rehearsing I'll be posting updates on that here as well. This will be my conduit of anticipation for, if the stars can align twice, another wonderful Fringe Festival.
In the mean time, production on The Turning of Time is about to begin. There will be lots of preview posts coming for that one.
