Theatre

Is He Dead???

No. I won’t tell you the answer to that. If you want to know, you’ll have to come see the play. Hehe.

When my nose isn’t buried in a keyboard creating new characters, I’m stepping into the shoes of other people’s characters. The stage was my safe haven before the page. The one thing I wanted to do more than anything. I wanted to be a Broadway star. Then life happened. And kids. Haha.

This August, in the middle of two books getting ready to go to editors, I decided it would be a GREAT idea to be in a play. Mercifully, my part is small, only about 90 lines to cram into my noggin.

The theatre I’m working with (The Belfast Maskers) has just purchased a new building to house their shows, so in addition to learning lines and blocking, we’re working with a stage being built around us. Exciting stuff!

The show is by Mark Twain believe it or not! It was polished up by the comedically brilliant David Ives. The hardest part of this show for me (aside from perfecting a French accent) is going to be keeping a straight face. So many funny one-liners and situations. If you’re local, this one will be worth your time. Seriously funny stuff.
