Showcase Showdown

Showcase Writers with Peter Krause

I’m in recovery today from the NYU New Writers Showcase, which went off swimmingly last night in Los Angeles. The 10-minute play showcase was written, directed, produced, performed, and even funded by Tisch School of the Arts alumni living in LA. It was, as you may imagine, a ton of work. But by the time the show came down at 9:30 PM it was clear, at least to us writers,  that it had been totally worth it.

I couldn’t be more grateful to all of the amazing amazing people who came out and volunteered their time to make our plays happen. It’s just one of those situations where it feels like “thank you” isn’t enough, so you find yourself saying it over and over and over again. So many people went so far above and beyond, I know I must have missed a person or two.

So, in case you’re one of those people – Thank You!

And my 10-min play Gravity went very well, too!  If you feel like reading it, it can be downloaded as a PDF from the plays page. (and don’t be confused if the title page says Push – I just changed it)

    Hi Ruth, i just read Gravity/Push – what a great little play! (we watch the amazing race all the time, and use it as an excuse to try odd things when we’re traveling) I tracked you down because you won the Stanley Drama Award last year, and I just found out that I won it this year, and I was interested in seeing how Stray is going, and how the award has helped (or if?) and things like that. Anyway, there you have it!
