The next few weeks will see the openings of two, count 'em, two of my plays. In fact, two of my favourite plays.
January 15th is the opening night for the Canadian premiere of "The Accidental Hit-Man Blues" produced by Blackhorse Village Players in Tottenham, Ontario, just northwest of Toronto. They will have ten performances running through February 1st.
The following week, on February 6th, "A Year In The Death Of Eddie Jester" opens at Mapleton Hall, presented by the Suffield Players, in Suffield, Connecticut, a short drive up I-91 from Hartford (or a short drive down I-91 from Springfield, Massachusetts). They will have eight performances over three weekending, running until February 22.
I am excited about these shows and plan to see both of them. You should too. These companies pour an incredible amount of hard work, dedication, and talent in their productions. Even you don't live nearby, they are worth the drive.
Suffield is about eight hours driving time from where I live. Not gonna stop me. So if your excuse for missing either of these plays is that it's just too far, you'd better be prepared to back up that claim with real geography and a tragic disinterest in being entertained.
Check out the shows. Maybe I'll see you there.
