Schedule-Meisters in Australia, November 16-19
My short play, Schedule-Meisters, which premiered in Minnesota this past summer, at the Lakeshore Players festival, will be on stage next week in Australia, at the Short & Sweet Festival, November 16-19, at the Judith Wright Center for Contemporary Art. Heidi Manche will direct. Short and Sweet is a huge festival that presents more than 300 short plays by writers from around the world in cities in Australia, India, Singapore, and Malaysia.
This marks the first time my work will have appeared on stage in Australia, so I'm pretty psyched. (My work has also been on stage in Canada, England, and Mexico.)
The play has just been published by Brooklyn Publishers, and you can read a sample here. It's a fun comedy about a woman left on the verge of sanity by her seemingly infinite brood of kids, and a young woman from the Schedule-Meisters service who promises she can provide some help.
