A New Venture!

As some of you may know, I am not teaching this year, which I miss.  I am, however, writing a play.

My play was inspired by the 2002 film, Huit Femmes, released in the United States as Eight Women.

It is a rather silly play that almost seems like a French satire on the English cozy mystery crossed with the 1950s edition of an American musical.

I wanted to write a play in which 8 of Shakespeare’s female characters meet — perhaps re-incarnated to a contemporary large city in either England or the USA — to discuss their childhood, their marriages and their parenting styles.  Along the way, a tragedy occurs which changes everything for the women.

Hmmm.  Perhaps, a later revision will eliminate the tragedy.

Anyway, today, I apply for a grant to support the writing.  Wish me luck!
