Still working on the project that’s making me psychotic.
I worked through the night and finished drafting version two of my script at 4:20 am this morning. Now waiting for feedback and revisions.
The show is happening in 10 days and I’m in two minds about publicising a performance for which I don’t even have a working script.
My mentor-director said, “Don’t worry. Theatre is like that.” And he went on to talk about plateaus and breakthroughs. “It’ll happen,” he said. “Trust that I won’t allow your performance to be bad.”
I hope for my sake that his skill will overcompensate my cluelessness.
I won’t ask anyone to buy tickets to watch my show because I cannot conscientiously sell a product that technically doesn’t exist yet. (I’m morally uptight that way, which makes me really suck at sales pitches.)
But here’s the flyer, anyway.
I may not have a saleable product yet, but I’m not the only performer. It’s a three-in-one show, so even if mine sucks (although I’m working on it not sucking), there are still two others which are worth watching.
You can get a discount if you mention my name (Shen Qiaoyun) in the email when you order tickets. Not sure how much, though.
