But this is about playwriting. This time last year I believed I would only be producing two adaptations. I was unaware that I would remount I Hate This, that I would be going to Alaska, that I would be further developing a new work I had started two years earlier, that my father would die.
Great things that did happen in 2016:
- World premiere adaptation of The Secret Adversary for Great Lakes Theater
- World premiere of Toni K.'s Golden at Talespinner Children's Theatre
- Shakespeare's Folio tour of adaptation Twelfth Night (As Told By Malvolio)
- Script-in-hand workshop of The Way I Danced With You at Playwrights Local
What else, I cannot say. Received a query about performing the stillbirth play in Turkish, that sounded very interesting but I have not heard back. If the recent past has taught me anything, however, it is that surprises, good and ill, await around every corner.
