The lovely Emily Simoness, actor in my williamstown play, has a family farm up in Brewster, NY. Geniusly, she is starting to invite groups up to develop plays, writers to write, etc – but not only do you do play things – you also work on the farm during your stay. I think, in the spirit of disengaging from completely from the way the way the world actually works (stupid trains / fax machines / toss your own salad / student loans)…I’m going to head there for a week in Sept, challenge myself to write a 2 character play, and feed some chickens. People, I am going to ‘Ryde*’ this train of good fortune for as long as I possibly can. Then, I will cry and get a job at H&M.
