We finally got the internet working after about six hours (hah!). Truth be told, we didn't really put that much focus on it until just now.
At this moment, six writers are working on plays for the event. They've been given a theme (still a secret at present!). The coffee is brewing, the snacks are available and I hope that the new found Wi-Fi connection doesn't distract the authors. They have until 6am to write the plays.
The directors and actors are trying to get some sleep (I assume that's true.) Bill Cooper, local talent, is taking a director position. I'm excited for him! He's never done it before, but part of the purpose of the festival is to get people to do stuff that they haven't done before. Thomas has the best writing process that I've seen so far.
I'm writing a little bit myself. Not going to stage it, but it serves as a remind to some writers, especially the one's whose name begins with a "P" and ends in "Eter Griffin" will focus on the work at hand. Plus, any chance to focus on writing is a good thing. The sound of a keyboard hard at work I find truly comforting.
At 8am tomorrow, the directors will show up, get their scripts, then call the actors and get cracking at the work! It's going to have a fun show and I'm hoping for a solid turn-out.
There should be some more updates later on. Stay tuned!
