Ok, no one else may be excited, but I finally figured out why I was having such a hard time writing this play. I was focusing on different stories from three different Theatres. I’ve split them into a trilogy. I’m working on finishing ‘Fly Loft’ first. ‘Fly Loft’ I imagine as Harbach at Knox College in Galesburg, Ill.
‘Dust’: Timber Lake Playhouse, Mt. Carroll, Illinois
‘Wolf’: Lawrence Community Theatre, Lawrence, KS (the one in the Church)
I’ve got the back story and the dramaturgy notes started. If I start to stray with ‘Fly Loft,’ I can dump that back story or ideas into the bucket of the other two drafts to work on another time.
Less like a bag of cats.
