Earlier this year, I wrote a new play, Twelve Nights. This time I cleverly excluded any of those bothersome songs, hoping that would make it more stageable, but less cleverly sabotaged the play by using twelve characters. I had fun in the writing and learned from the feedback, and next year I'll write a new play with many of the same themes but half the characters.

For now, though, I'd like to have a read-through. Just for funsies. To be done properly, it will require twelve readers, six female-presenting and six male-presenting (plus one for stage directions).

But wait, Cee, what's this play about? Friendship, sex, religion, and mid-life crises. It's a comedy of manners, a modern take on what happens when a love potion a la Midsummer Night's Dream sends a group of friends into a tailspin. It's a love letter to a certain romantically adventurous subset of my community. I'm told that it's witty, interesting, and timely.

So, who will take a role? All I need is twelve other people who can commit to getting together once to read aloud, some time in the next month or two. If there's more interest in that, then yay, we'll have backup readers (which we might need, with a cast of twelve) and maybe even an audience. If there's sufficient interest, I'll reserve a library room or somesuch for the read-through.

Comment or email me at ceelove [at] speakeasy (dot) net, and I'll get you a PDF of the script.

If there is no photography involved and this is at a time I can make it, sure, why not :) I enjoyed it during the first read through--should be fun. Tuesday and Thursdays are out, as is Friday, 11/7 and anytime between 11/13-11/16, 11/20- 11/27, and 12/18-12/24 . If there are any times left that fit in with your scheduling on this, count me in (I realize this may be a challenge).

I'm hoping for a video of the read-through, so it wouldn't be ideal for you to read. You're still welcome to be an audience member if the timing works for you!

I see. Sure, let me know when it happens and I'll see if I'm free and up for it :)
