Just back from a great weekend at Dayton Playhouse's Futurefest 2017.
What a joy to get to know fellow playwrights Angela Davis, Desiree York, J. Thalia Cunningham, Mark Cornell, and Olga Humphrey (whose magnificent play "Magnificent Hubba Hubba" won the top prize and my heart), all of whom are doing great work and turn out to be really great people to boot; adjudicators Peter Filichia, Ashley Rodbro, Helen Sneed, Eileen Morris, and Jim Vagias, who gave us such thoughtful, engaging, and fun conversation, on and off the panel; and the Playhouse's Brian Sharp, Tina McPhearson, Fran Pesch, & their army of readers, actors, directors, designers, caterers, drivers,house staff, & audiences who pull off this extraordinary weekend-long festival year after year.
Special thanks also to Tim Rezash and the cast of Wake for their lovely work in my reading on Saturday.
It's quite a community they have at that theater. I'm glad to have been a part of it.
