ANOTHER OPENING, ANOTHER SHOW!

Last night the Marin Fringe Festival of One-acts and Solos opened on Dominican University Campus. A nice crowd appreciated our efforts. To those of you who know me only as a writer, acting has been a life-long love of mine as well. This project was a fresh relief from writing/researching the mining industry in the 19th century. I wrote and performed 3 monologues, entitled “Three Old Ladies Talk About Sex”. One was a British lady answering questions for a sexology club. The second was a southern woman remembering her one night of love, and the third a French woman bemoaning the fact that we don’t have Viagra for the mind. But I haven’t been on stage for several years, and as memory fades, it becomes harder and harder to learn lines. I practiced them every day for weeks. There were times when I thought I’d never be ready, and it used to be so easy to learn lines. But gratefully, all went well last night and I had many favorable comments. Seven friends were in the audience, and I expect more in the coming performances. Hope to see you there, too, if you’re in the Bay Area!
