Mendenhall gets serious scoping out the lay of the Luhvul land ...
Sunday, Feb. 11
Humana is starting to get busy: Naomi Iizuka showed up for the first read of her piece (Strike Slip). Of interest to DC audiences is Craig Wright (The Unseen) and Sherry Kramer (When Something Wonderful Ends), whose new plays are both being done. Josh Lefkowitz, who did that great one-man piece at the Fringe and then at Woolly, is here too, in one of the other plays.
There are what seems like 50 apprentices, who work like dogs. There are also two other projects, The Open Road Anthology, which is a collaborative writing project, and Susan Lori Parks' 365 plays.
I played darts at Freddy's last night. My kind of place. Cash only, and bring an oxygen tank. You should come, if at all possible. There's a great energy here.
