I expanded a 10 minute ( "Reciting Emily Dickinson") first staged in 2008 to about 22 minutes and was informed it will be given staged readings at Theatre du Mississippi April 17 -19.

Made my day :)

You get a big" ATTABOY" timmy!

Way to go. And being able to exapand on an older play is often overlooked.

As Tennesse Williams once said to Gore Vidal, "It may be published, but ot doesn't mean it is finished."

I'v had success with that myself. Taking a ten minute play that has won awards and making it a 45 minute play sometime later. And in one case a one-act play into a two-act play that won five National awards in one year.

I encourage others to do the same. As Yogi Berra said, "It ain't over till it's over"

Best,

IMR

Congratulations, not only on the readings, but on your perseverance!

Or as Miss Dickinson would say:
"Fortune befriends the bold."

IMR: Thanks.

Good to see your words, DWolfman.

Edd, This is the play from Bethesda when we were together on the same Bill. Revved it up one night and it just came out. Thanks.
