Got some good news today. My play ALWAYS A CHANCE OF RAIN: A NOAH RIFF has won the National Playwriting Competition for Children's Theatre from University of Central Missouri. It includes a production this fall and $1,000. It's a play that I wrote when I was working with Paula Vogel a few years ago at one of her famous playwright boot-camps.
One of the things that is super cool about this play -- is where it came from. I was working wit Paula Vogel at a playwrights bootcamp with 6 other p-wrights and this was a weekend "bake-off" play. Each weekend we wrote a play - in 48 hours. Once you start typing the clock starts ticking... 48 hours later - you stop.
This play is essentially the same from the 48 experiment. Sure - I corrected some typos - and a few things got changed -- but essentially the play i what I wrote that weekend with Paula V.
