This weekend, I'm going to actually be READING a piece of mine for a SHOW called Expressing Motherhood. When I submitted an essay, I thought I was submitting something that would be performed by local actors. What I didn't realize was that I'm the local "actor.". I was too embarrassed to say, "No," and then too embarrassed to tell anyone about it.
But then I did. I told all my friends, thinking that it would actually be fun. And I learned that not everyone who is doing the show is an actor and not everyone is actually "performing." So, I'm reading this weekend at Electric Lodge in Venice.
There's more on the show, here, where it was featured this morning on Good Day LA.
At rehearsal the other night, we were told that there's going to be a reception area of sorts before the show begins and that alcohol is available. I'm not much of a drinker, but I plan on having a couple.
