| ||Why 90 Pages|
I was chatting online with fellow playwright Christopher Chen this morning, each of us asking what the other is currently working on. Chris asked about my page count, which is still at 64 (I didn't work on the play last night because I decided to get to bed early).
Chris asked why I was so bent on getting to 90 pages. It turns out that he's working on a play that's 132 pages and must trim it down. Well, for me the 1 minute a page rule pretty much applies. My other plays are around 90 pages and run close to an hour and a half so if I want a play to be considered a full length I have to shoot for that magic number: 90 pages.
Oh I wish I could write a two hour play. Some day...maybe.
But for now I'll struggle a bit with the play and then call on my dramaturg to help me see what's missing. But before Nakissa will take on that task she and I have to finish Woman on Fire. We talked yesterday about setting up a meeting to watch a video of the last reading of the play in order to get back into re-write/dramaturgy mode. We're all about finishing that play.
Here's to finishing.
