Hoorah! Caloo-calay, I've done it! I've finished that play I was working on. The play is tentatively title Arizona Rose, but I hate that name. But that's not really important. The important thing is that this is my first full length play, that is a play more than one hour in length. This is a huge weight off my sholders as I've been trying to finish this play for a long time now. I say "finished," a play is never finished until it's up on the stage. And even then it can be altered. But, I've gotten the play to a place where I am generally happy with the plot and the flow of the primary story. Most of all I think it is the best ending to a play that I've ever written without becoming crazy or outlandish.
I really want to have a party and have people over to read through the play. This is so that I can get an idea of how it reads, and most of all, see if other people like it. The last version of this play had a reading of this kind, and I got some great feedback that I used, and I believe made the play a lot better. Also, the comments that were made here by all of you were very helpful and I think that I was able to accomplish what I wanted based on the comments here.
I will be emailing people I want to play what parts, but if there's anyone here in the Baytown/Houston area who would like to read with us, let me know. I want to make a whole night of it. The cast list here at the end of the post.
