Last night, I was given a citation of failure at the Closing Night and Awards Ceremony of the Pretentious Festival. My award: Most Understood.
I apologize to all my Pretentious compatriots for writing work that garnered laughter and nods of understanding from the audience. It was not my intention to to be "understood."
In other news, An Interview with the Author has been extended by the Brick Theater. We will have four more performances in July. Which proves the old adage: "Integrity is for artists; Extension is for Matthew Freeman."
