i'm directing a staged reading for fertile ground! it's a play at the intersection of art and science, one of my favorite places. it's a complex script with a strong female protagonist created by a female playwright.

i agreed to direct on NYE, making it a new year's resolution of sorts. i was tapped at the last minute after another director flaked out. since my pdx theatre connections are so tenuous, i agreed on the condition that the playwright do most of the setup: cast the actors, set the rehearsal schedule, find rehearsal space, etc. even so, i'll end up spending close to 40 hours on preparation for this play by the time it's over and done. january is one of my busiest months for SP work, but i decided i would regret not doing it.

fortunately, it's been really fun! after almost 2 weeks of hard prep it was a relief to meet the cast at the first rehearsal and find they are generally top-notch actors. it was a delight to hear the script, which has primarily been in my head, be transformed by their interactions and movements. we only have one more rehearsal but i'll be spending some time in between coaching for diction and projection.

MARCH by Kate Belden

Sunday, January 27, 2013 1-3 p.m.
Hipbone Studio: 1847 E. Burnside Street #104
$10

Margery Dawson is a neuroanatomist, a PhD in how the brain works. But hers isn't. Hers is having a stroke. And though she's too busy to have one, and certainly too busy for history, family, or a relationship, all of them are happening. Right here, right now.

Described as fugue for three voices, MARCH is a play that looks at an experience as the brain does. Seemingly disjointed, but perhaps the most accurate description of what truly happened.

this is the video that inspired the play:
