"GENTLEMEN, WE ARE AT WAR WITH TROY AND MUST NOT DROP OUR GUARD AT ALL"
"sir, the enemy gave us a giant wooden horse"
"oh rad bring it in"
This is great except that THE GREEKS WERE THE ONES WHO BUILT THE HORSE. It went TO Troy, not from it.
I know that nobody is sitting at home going, “Kacy hasn’t told us about her life in a while, what’s going on??” but I thought I’d share this with ya.
Last week, I went to see a short play festival thing-a-ma-jig here in Charlotte. I wrote a piece for it. It was originally supposed to be in February, meaning I wrote this like, 9 months ago. (it’s my BABY)
Anyway. I told myself that I wouldn’t read it until after the show, since we only had a limited time to write & I didn’t want to start editing it & second guessing it and so forth. So obviously, I read it like a week before the show. And I was sitting there, thinking “WHY DID I THINK THIS IS FUNNY” and “WHAT THAT IS WRONG AND I DIDN’T FIX IT OH GOD” and “NOBODY IS GOING TO LIKE THIS AND MINE WILL BE THE WORST ONE THERE OH GOD WHY”
So then the show happened. And it was friggen awesome.
I gotta say, mine got one of the best reactions. And then a girl I work with went to the showcase on a different night than me, and then came up to me at work and was like “Did you write a piece for that play festival? I saw your name! Yours was one of the good ones! It was great!” and I was super excited. :)
I loved it.
There is a recording of it that is being edited right now, and once I have it, I’ll share it with you guys if you’re interested. The festival was called The End of the World Sampler Platter, and each person’s play had to be based somehow on the idea of the end of the world.
Seriously, you guys, I was so excited to see this. This was the first time I was actually able to SEE something I wrote on stage. (The last time I wrote something, I was in it.) It was great. I was so proud.
