Many, many thanks to everyone who turned out for the rehearsed reading of Sandi Toksvig’s BULLY BOY at Common Ground Theatre. Not only did you provide the team with some very specific and enthusiastic feedback, you also raised $500 for IAVA! So, thanks and very well done Common Wealth Clan!
The response to the BULLY BOY readings means I’m now actively discussing bringing the play back for a full run during Summer 2014, and also looking at obtaining the rights to tour the play throughout North Carolina. Now that’s exciting!
On the same night as the first reading of BULLY BOY, I received confirmation that Common Wealth has the rights to a fascinating new play by a young British playwright: MANY MOONS by Alice Birch. Half the cast is already in place, the search for suitable male actors commences soon, and production meetings are being scheduled. And thus the second ‘main stage’ endeavor for Common Wealth begins. My little adventure is taking on a life of its own.
Look for performance dates and further information as we get closer to November. In the meantime, enjoy the rest of your summer, and don’t forget you can help fund a Common Wealth endeavor by following the link to Fractured Atlas on the main website page.
