One thing that’s happened during this year of the pandemic: I’ve had a lot of script requests from non-theatres. Some have come from book clubs, some have come from families looking for home entertainment. Some haven’t worked out, but the Monday Night Book Club in Minneapolis, Minnesota did do a Zoom reading of my full-length A DICKENS OF A CHRISTMAS on Dec. 20, 2020 (which wasn’t a Monday night but the whole year has been out of whack).
Organizer Stephanie Pearson sends this fan mail:
“We had a wonderful time reading your play at our bookclub tonight. I am the woman in the black (stage direction) with the phone. We’ve been together over 20 years so it was fun to connect with this play!
Everyone enjoyed themselves! I loved how you integrated A Christmas Carol in with the plot along with the funny (and cranky) Lady Crumblebum. I couldn’t stop laughing during these scenes. Also, you had some great references on gender roles (ie: women doing dishes) which I think we are still doing today 100 years later. Funny!
Thanks for making our zoom holiday bookclub a memorable one. We appreciate your willingness to share and provide us with a great script to read.”
