The latest incarnation of a Theatre Unleashed play development group (Writer's Den) has been going for just over a year(!!!) now. The purpose of the group is to work together to improve ourselves as writers, and to develop new work for the TU stage. Originally, the idea would be for the members to bring in their individual projects for feedback and assistance, but recently some of us began collaborating on a larger group project. I don't want to go into too much detail yet, but I'm excited to say that we recently had the reading of the first draft, and I'm thrilled to see where this is going!
Joining me in this collaborative endeavor are the incredibly gifted scribes Justin Moran (POPE! An Epic Musical, The Spidey Project), Matt Ritchey (Nevermore, Angel's Flight), the team of Heidi Powers & Tom Moore (Bronies: The Musical), Esther Mira, Ann Hurd, Cyanne McClairian (I Died... I Came Back... Whatever), Cesar Abella (Sleeping Around), CJ Hoke (The Cloisterham Case Files), Greg Machlin (WRNG in Studio City), and the team of Sam Johnides and Tony Gonzalez (The Sam & Tony Show, BRAAAINZZZ). I'm honored to be able to collaborate with a group of such distinguished and talented writers.
