Three plays in process, 5 more in the planning (just through May!). There will be more plays later in the year (I hope!), I just don't have anything booked or scheduled yet.

My Sunday consisted of a board meeting for my theater company, as we prepare for our second production, Agatha Christie's The Mousetrap. Then off to a stumble-through and production meeting for Slasher; during which darling husband and 2/3 of my offspring decided to text or call me within a 30-minute span. All independently, unbeknownst to the others. And all because the hubs forgot to get milk. The one thing he needed to get at the grocery store - and he forgot. Well, he's 50 now, and his memory is going to pot (along with his belly. This man is not aging well.) Which meant a quick stop at the store on my way home, to purchase said beverage.
Finally, home. I fixed myself a late supper (good thing I have veggie burgers in the freezer; made me feel better about Saturday's splurge), poured a glass of vino, and settled in to watch the Golden Globes. And thought about a quick project to work on from the comfort of my couch. Because of the Golden Globes, I passed on the second episode of Downton Abbey on t.v. (I'll catch it today online!), but I still wanted something inspired by the gorgeous outfits seen on that show.
I feel like quite the fancy lady with my alpaca-silk mitts and velvet-beadwork choker. These may be the last items I create for myself for a bit; with so much costume work in the next few weeks, my creations will include the following items: a horror film-inspired mask for Slasher; man-boobs for The Complete Wrks of Wllm Shkspre, Abridged (yep, just like Shakespeare's day - men playing the women's roles); and perhaps some little gifts for the cast of The Mousetrap, inspired by the title.
|Seriously, the book just happened to be there.|
