Good 'night'.

Tonight is the Studio Theatre's play proposal meeting. It's the night when directors who want to direct something for upcoming season go out and propose their play. Then the people on the "selection committee" (for lack of a better turn) go and read all the plays, and consider all the directors, and try to come up with the best season they can.

Somehow, I'm just crazy enough to try this directing thing again, and will be pitching a play called 'Night, Mother in probably close to an hour.

It's a beautifully written play that just happens to be, at least in part, about suicide. Yet, in spite of that expectantly bleak subject, it's a play with a surprising amount of warmth to it. And, of course, it's not something that's going to be enjoyed by everyone. Surprise, surprise.

Wish me luck.
