2nd play

Well, my feeling when I reviewed my script for Three Brothers when I was in Albuquerque that it was shit was pretty well held up by what I saw on stage. I wanted to cancel it but my brother had already bought a ticket, so I was committed. It was so depressing to see something so bad in front of me when I knew I had nobody to blame but myself for its horrible core of wandering dialogue; but I also had the actors to be angry at for some performances, when lines were dropped left and right and the whole thing was just a giant mess.

I had someone from the literary department of Royal Court come by and watch it and I don't suspect they'll be calling me any time soon. It's a learning experience, sure, but I wish they'd seen something I wrote more recently, and I have very much improved over the last two years.
