Even with all the holiday festivities this month, we managed to pull together nine people for a full evening of play reading last night.
We started with "King Solomon Gets Horny", Tim Phillips' bawdy comedy about the unique challenges of dealing with 300 wives and some 600 concubines. We followed that with Joye Cook-Levy's thought-provoking dramedy "The Happy Middle", which explores the struggle to find balance in the middle of a busy life. And we finished up with "You're Driving Me Crazy", my short comedy which shows what happens when you get stuck with a driving instructor who doesn't really want to be there.
There were a lot of great comments all around. In fact, this was the first time we ran over our allotted two hours, not that this posed a problem.
And it was really nice to see a core group starting to form. The Drama Lab is always open to new writers, actors and spectators, of course. But I believe that no group can be successful without a handful of regulars to provide continuity.
Hope to see you all back in the New Year!
