I was privileged to attend the World Premiere of CARVED-OUT LIGHT at the Obsidian Theatre in Houston last week, at Cone Man Running Production's "Five Minute Mile" festival of 5-minute plays. Congrats to cast Elizabeth Grant (left, above) and Brittny Bush (right, above) and director Renata Smith! And, for Houstonites, there are three more shows, for a total of 8 performances.
From Cone Man Production's website: "The best part is that you get to help decide what you see! 32 plays are selected for the production. Eight are scheduled to perform each night. The next six are drawn at random at the start of the show. The last six are voted on by the audience based on the title, descriptions and the actors involved! It’s a different line up every single night!
From a submission pool of almost 400 short plays and monologues, this festival features plays from 32 playwrights across the country..."
Also, CARVED-OUT LIGHT will be published in THE BEST 5-MINUTE PLAYS book by Applause Theatre & Cinema Books, a Division of Hal Leonard Performing Arts Publishing Group (tentative publication date January 2017).
CARVED-OUT LIGHT is a spiritual dramedy and was inspired by a Lino Tagliapietra glasswork exhibit at the Palm Springs Art Museum.
A beautiful vase, glowing from within, sits on an art gallery shelf. She is joined by a divaesque “new girl” vase who blames the glassblower for her woes…
