The play I was in just ended, which is somewhat sad as it was very well-received. It's nice to be in something good and to have people laugh. There's a fair chance it will be revived again. It's biggest problem is that it is too long ( a two hour forty-five minute comedy? ohhhh...). Before I left the theater last night I told the director I'd be willing to do an edit and rewrite of the script. Hopefully he'll take me up on it; I could knock that thing down to 90 minutes in a heartbeat.
The one-act festival ended as well, and I'm more than sad about that because I only got to see my play once and because one-acts don't really have much of a life in them; it's not like it's going to get revived. I'm still surprised by how much people liked the play I wrote. I think it was mostly due to the good cast I had. They told me they all loved being in it, and that's what meant a lot to me; I always want to make the actors happy. If they're having a good time, the audience probably is too. So I guess it's a sad goodbye, my Mr. Winnecker.
Meanwhile, "Henry V" has proven almost impossible to cast. The problem is that aside from the king himself, there really aren't any substantial roles, and even with doubling or combining characters, a lot of actors seem to have thought the parts given to them were too small for them to put in that rehearsal time. To that I say it is better to be in something than nothing, no matter how small your part is. Good luck, divas.
