Newspaper coverage of my one-act “Follow The Money”

The festival was the cover story of the Martinsburg Journal's entertainment section, with a photo from my show as the main image.

My one-act about a kid who kidnaps the tooth fairy to find out where the money comes from — “Follow the Money: A Modern-Day Fairy Tale” — took first place in the New Voice Play Festival in Charles Town, West Virginia. (More on that here.)

The entire festival got nice press coverage from the local daily newspaper, the Journal in Martinsburg.

When I was in Charles Town for the festival, I saw some copies lying around but they were no longer available on the newsstand, so I ordered some — and here they are.

You’ll see it was a photo from my play that graced the cover of the paper’s weekly entertainment tab (above.)

And below is the two-page spread (a doubletruck, in newspaper language) on the festival:

Most people would call this the centerfold. But they'd be wrong. In newspaper language, this is called a "doubletruck."

The newspaper geek in me was pleased to see this -- I even made the front page. Well, technically in the ear. Or the skybox. Different papers call it different things.
