Suffice to say...

...I've had easier nights, as a playwright, than last night. Everyone involved worked hard, including the audience. I'm glad I did it, and we'll see what there is to draw from it in the long run. Feedback ranged from the polite, to the careful, to the particularly harsh.

Thanks for everyone who came last night, to Kyle for putting the reading together, and the actresses who did an amazing job working with the text.

It's kind of hard to give substantial feedback if I'm not sure exactly what you're going for. I doubt your piece was meant to please, per se, but if there was something else you were going for, perhaps ask for feedback about that something else?

Damn, now I'm REALLY sorry I missed this. Do you think you'll write more about it here?

Hey there -

I do think, now with a few days distance, I will write some details about the piece, the responses, how I felt about it, and what I think I'll do about it.
