All the news, none of it fit

Today is the end of the second full week of school since the end of the summer holidays. It is also the second Friday in a row where I got home at about four-ish and fell asleep on the couch until about five-ish. Coincidence?

Also this week, we’ve begun rehearsals for the next show at the Thibodaux Playhouse, All the Great Books Abridged by Reed Martin and Austin Tichenor of the Reduced Shakespeare Company. I’m directing this play, in addition to appearing in the cast, along with my good friends Paul Cook and Damon Stentz. This is the third RSC-penned play I’ve been in, having appeared in college productions of The Complete Works of William Shakespeare Abridged and The Complete History of America Abridged back in… well… college. The script, of course, is fantastic and funny, but I’d forgotten just how physical these RSC shows are. I was exhausted after rehearsal last night, and my leg has been really sore today after a minor fall I took because I’m a klutz who still has trouble standing up without breaking my own tailbone.

But damn, it’s gonna be a good show.

I promise, those of you who see it on a Friday, I won’t fall asleep.

    Oh wow! I, too, had forgotten how physical those shows are. Of course, I wasn’t the one getting the workout. Have fun. And while you won’t be the one falling asleep on the Friday night, I can’t say that I wouldn’t fall asleep at the wheel on the way over. May make it on a Saturday.
