Heading out in a few hours to the airport for my next writing adventure: the workshop of BURST in Theatre 33‘s Summer Season in Salem, Oregon!
Here are all the details in case you happen to be in the area:
BURST by Rachel Bublitz
directed by Theresa Robbins Dudeck
June 12th (that's today!), 13th, 14th, and 15th at 7pm
June 15th and 16th at 2pm
All performances will be held at M. Lee Pelton Theatre at Willamette University in Salem, Oregon.
Sarah Boyd is an extraordinary human being. Not only did she build her company from scratch using nothing but willpower and fortitude, she also sits on the precipice of truly saving this planet. Because on top of being one of the fastest growing tech companies in history, Tactix, with Sarah at its helm, will usher this planet into the post-plastic era. A time where we need not worry or fret over the great destruction being done to our world from this non-biodegradable foe. With her eyes steady on her next round of funding, Sarah must persevere through a late night interview with a particularly tough reporter, a lawsuit aimed at a person from her past, and the waffling of her CTO. It's a heavy load, and Sarah knows that she is the only one great enough to bear it.
After each of the performances there will be a talkback with me and the dramaturg on the project, Deb Vaughn.
I hope you'll come out and see me and this workshop, it's always exciting to see a new play getting up on its feet for the first time!
