At a SPIN in 2013 I told the story of being socially raped by a group of loud talking, vocal fyr-y and uptalk-ing 20 somethings and my struggle with how these sounds affect the state of women as a whole.
Well, I’ve been working tirelessly on a dark dramedy/TV show idea based on this for about a year and now it’s time for a reading.
ONE WEEK AFTER THE AFRICA SPIN….
We’ve been invited by Gershwin Live to do a reading of Dream State at the Dixon Place Lounge Friday October 2nd at 7:30 (promptly). $10 suggested donation.
Dream State (previously called Intervention):
After losing both her fiancé and the starring role in Pantomime the Musical to Patty, a 20-something who talks like a bouncy Barbie, Melody Smith, seeks revenge on a similar parallel group of ladies. But when Melody is called out by these 20-somethings, the pain of universal female hatred rises and an unusual bond begins to form between her, these ladies and her old-school feminist boss and friend. Together they try to start a movement toward inter-archy, one part matriarchy, one part patriarchy. It turns out the road to good intentions are lined with ambition, contradiction and a twisted subconscious.
Here’s a version of the story, Intervention, I told at TALE.
