On April 22nd - a Monday night, no less - I'll be appearing in a session of the superb switched-up storytelling program No, YOU Tell It! The concept behind this program is really wonderful. Two pairs of performer/writers match up to workshop a personal narrative with the whole group, revise, and then work with a director before presenting the piece. And the twist, is that the writer performs his or her partner's story, and vice versa. While the writer of the story sits there on stage with them.
Scary stuff - believe me.
Exploring the theme of "outdated" led me down a lot of different paths, including some dating stories from my single life (I'll let you decide if the medium deterred me from that subject matter). What I've ended up writing about is a sort of retrospective of my work with my commedia dell'arte troupe, Zuppa del Giorno, and an exploration of what it means to be a dad now. It's hopefully funny. It's definitely honest.
