“57 Hours in the House of Culture” called “well-crafted” and “compelling”

Just got one of the nicest rejection letters ever, this from a theatre in . . . well, let’s just say somewhere in the United States.

This was in reference to my full-length script “57 Hours in the House of Culture,” about the Moscow theatre siege.

And I quote:

“I did want to let you know that out of the 200 submissions we considered, 57 Hours in the House of Culture made a very strong impression and stayed on our shortlist until close the very end. It is a well-crafted story told in a compelling manner with characters that are diverse and strong. However, due to the larger cast size along with technical elements we felt were essential to telling this story correctly, we had to pass on it this year. However, we look forward to considering it again next year, along with any other work you submit in the future.”

The show was originally produced in May 2012 at Studio Roanoke in Roanoke, Virginia. Here’s more on that production:
