Last night was the final performance of One Bear Lake at 5th Wall Productions theater. While I could not be there, I found out through Facebook that it was a sold out performance. I am thrilled for the cast and company. They worked incredibly hard on putting the production together and staging seven performances of the play. I was fortunate enough to be there for two of them. 5th Wall helped me develop the piece from a ten-minute script to a full-length play so I couldn’t be happier that it had its world premiere with the folks that helped me hone and craft the story.
To be frank, 2017 has gotten off to a horrible start for me and those closest to me, so I was happy to have this as a distraction for the past three weeks. I’m going to miss the updates from the cast and director. I thank them all for giving me the taste of being a produced playwright. I WANT MORE!!! I have a feeling you spoiled me by giving me such a painless introduction to this world.
To cast and company, take a bow. I can’t adequately express my appreciation for what you did with the pages I gave you. KUDOS FROM THE PLAYWRIGHT!
