**Update! – April 29th, 2011**
The Wrecking Ball was a smashing success. I had a ball, and was just completely giddy and overwhelmed by the awesomeness of the interpretation of my piece by the director and actors who had probably just a few hours to rehearse and stage it. (Whose names I will add to this post in a more organized moment than this one.)
If you’d like to read the play (do it– it’s only a few pages and they’re all silly), I’ve created a pdf you can download. Here it is: Marc Garneau’s Moustache
And if you’re Canadian, GO VOTE on Monday!
Last week I wrote a short play called Marc Garneau’s Moustache. It’s about a bunch of teens participating in democracy in one of the few ways they can: by defacing campaign posters.
TODAY! At Mainline Theatre, 3997 St Laurent blvd. at 8pm, there will be a staged reading of Marc Garneau’s Moustache during the Wrecking Ball– an evening of theatre devoted to the question of voting or not voting.
It sounds like it should be fun. There’s music, a few short plays, and a game show. Admission is pay-what-you-can.
As for me, I’ll be voting later today at the advance polling station around the corner from the cafe where I’m working.
