| ||Another NYC Reading|That's right. On Friday I was invited to have Braided Sorrow included in Poetic Theater Productions' 2nd annual Poetic License festival of new poetic theatre that will take place January 21-27 next year.
And I'd like to take a moment to point out this is the second opportunity that has arisen of late that came about because I'm on Twitter. Seriously.
I met Alex Mallory, Co-Artistic Director of Poetic Theater Productions, online during a #NewPlay twitter conversation about political theatre. Side note: the Center for the Theatre Commons hosts weekly twitter conversations on Thursday at 11 PST using their hashtag #NewPlay.
Anyway, Alex and I found that when it comes to political theatre, she and I agree on lots of issues. So we exchanged an email or two and I was asked to share my work. Since Poetic Theater Productions is interested in poetic theatre (and in providing a space for both playwrights and poets) I sent her my two plays where my poetry comes across the most: Braided Sorrow (my first play) and The River Bride (my latest play).
I'm excited to have Braided Sorrow in a festival. Since its production in 2008 at Su Teatro in Denver, the play has had a life in academia thanks to many professions (Christina, Ashley and Esther to name a few) who've included Braided Sorrow in their syllabuses. And I'm glad to have another reading in New York so quickly on the heels of my November American Triage reading at Repertorio Español.
I don't know any specific details about when my reading will happen. So more on that as all this develops. And I'm looking forward to connecting with the artistic team that Poetic Theater assembles.
I have to say, this a great way to end 2012 and begin 2013.
