Bye, bye Fringe

My friend, Kate, and myself decided to do the Philly Fringe this year and scraped money from our pockets to make it happen. I have done Fringe shows before in a variety of places including Philadelphia, but never produced one. There is something immensely
satisfying about being part of a larger piece of theatre. Our show was exceedingly modest. It had to be. We were unable to give more to the coffers. It involved many things we did not foresee — needing to change the concept as a result of an illness, fitting a set onto the tiniest of stages, and writing publicity. In addition to a two woman show where our characters were steadily
disintegrating into madness.
We were surprised the audience came, applauded, and showered joyous response. Why can’t every theatre venture be so fortunate?
If all the world is a stage, let the productions set be as happy.
The play was Sturm und Drang, but the outcome was happiness. For once Thespis made me smile.


About christineemmert

Words have been part of my life. First the spoken word in my time as an actress and increasingly the written word in my shift to writer. I write across the genres, but mostly as a playwright and poet. My interest as my life extends is in the realm of tethering myth to the mundane reality where I live. In this vein I have expanded into stories and novels. Presently I look at how myths taken from past cultures can affect us today. Hence my novella of Lilith which is out on Kindle . I live in the Eastern Woodlands where I try to incorporate nature into my many writing projects. We are so in danger of losing that link to our very planet!
