Chili Con Carnage opens tomorrow night! This has been a very emotional journey for me, entering into the world of dark sadistic comedy. I am eager to share this production with an audience. Come down to Write Act Repertory and join us for tomorrow night’s festivities and a meet and greet with the actors after the show!
I just returned from my first rehearsal of Chili Con Carnage at Write Act Repertory. I was very pleased to see Michael Eiden, my director. He brings such a wonderful energy to the space and I feel completely safe in his hands.
We were also very fortunate to have the playwright at the rehearsal, Ann Gibbs, who is an experienced television writer. Ann was eager to answer our questions and give us some valuable insights. She also presented us with 10 pages of rewrites which dramatically change my character’s development and the feel of the piece.
I am looking forward to receiving the final script this week, which I hope with remain at least somewhat intact since we have very few rehearsals left. I am continuing to work on my dialect and character development, but have postponed any further memorization until I receive the next set of rewrites.
I am pleased to announce that I have been cast in a short play called Chili Con Carnage at Write Act Repertory. I am reuniting with director Michael Eiden after being selected as 1 or 4 actors playing 19 love-struck characters in his WCT production of Almost, Maine last year.
In Chili Con Carnage, I will be playing RickiJean, a young woman who lives in a run down cabin west of Big Cabin, Oklahoma, who supports herself by selling questionably made chili to the local Black Cat Tavern. I just finished my first read of the script and I am truly excited to dive into this project head first!
So, keep your eyes and ears open! More information about this project is COMING SOON!
