What’s the story?

Storytelling is a basic human need and pleasure, and it’s available now in so many forms, from movies and video games to the more timeless venue of a person alone in a spotlight sharing a tale with an audience. I am delighted to announce that a story about my late mother that I penned and submitted to Wordplay at Bricolage theater in Pittsburgh has been accepted for the next show. The Wordplay shows feature people telling true stories with a score created by a local DJ; I’ve been to a number of them, and they’re always dramatic, funny, startling, heartbreaking, shocking, gross, horrifying, moving, or just delightfully authentic. Or all of the above. So I’m chuffed, as the Brits say, to have my first submission accepted, and I’m looking forward to working with the Wordplaymeister, Alan Olifson, to polish my delivery for two performances.
