Sitting in the audience when you are the playwright

So, today, I went to the play festival to see our play “A Dummy’s Lament” (I am co-writer) performed in full production. We were one of six plays chosen, so that is a great honor.

The play is a comedy, so that is new territory for us. But it was fun.

This is the cast. From left to right:

Cody as Archie; Jacob as The Professor; Graham as the dancer; and the play director, Jack.

The story is, Archie is a ventriloquist’s dummy (played by a human male, but the character is a dummy), and The Professor is the one always trying to keep Archie out of trouble. Archie can’t get a date. The last date he had was 1847…because he lives in a box, and doesn’t get out much, you know.

The dancer dances by, with a ‘female’ dummy, and Archie falls in love.

Thanks to everyone who made the project a success!
