Last night was the staged reading of the new play Dead Man’s Wake by Larry Klein. We played to a full house and had a reception with discussion following. In the photo: (back row L to R) playwright Larry Klein, Jim Jones (Tom), director/dramaturg Becky Parker Geist (yep, moi), Lucette Fleming (Janet), Devin O’Brien (Brian), stage manager Bill Lane; (seated L to R) Gabriel Ross (Jess), Terry Boero (Leah), Chuck Isen (Danny), Wendy Wyatt-Mair (Andrea).
I love working on new plays, engaging in the process of creation and development! It is one of the ways in which I can help creators be heard – and THAT – helping others be heard, is part of my calling in this life. I figured that out recently. :)
Back to Dead Man’s Wake: I love how complex and developed these characters are! I look forward to finding the producers who will bring it to full production.
