What's up on the writing front?

For those who are keeping some sort of track of my output:

- Wrote a couple of one-page plays for the upcoming one-minute play festival. More details about all that when I have them. I initially thought that writing a one-page play would not be my cup of tea, but I'm actually sort of happy with both of them. They're called Last Words and Carbon Footprint.

- I've started working on a new comedy, which is called The Bull Crime, about a pharmaceutical company that discovers an incredibly beautiful fish that could be harvested for medical purposes.

- Of course there's the reading of In The Great Expanse of Space there is nothing to see but More, More, More, which is happening next Wednesday. Do come.

I plan on writing a lot about the text of that piece after the reading. But I don't want to write too much about it beforehand, and color the opinions of those who do see it. Either way, it's a very different piece for me and I'm excited to see how it will be received.
