I just wrote the first line of my new play BURST, which will probably change before anyone will get to read it, but it's a great feeling. Second only to getting to the end of play part of a first draft. I spent my day researching and outlining which never makes me feel as accomplished as being able to clock in those page counts. So, before I signed out for the day and head to collect children and then taxi them around to their various activities, I wrote the first line: “Hi. I'm Sarah. Sarah Boyd.”
BURST is inspired by the collapse of the tech company Theranos. This play will take place in ONE CONTINUOUS SCENE, which I've never done before, so wish me luck! I have an internal deadline for draft numero uno set for October 25th, just 14 days away.
Can I do it? Guess we'll find out.
