"The Reluctant Messenger" in Rendezvous With Madness 2023

Nov 02, 2023

Due to many technological challenges (not the least of which is the fact that I find technology, generally, challenging) I do not post here often.
Today, I share with you, the success of one of this year's most challenging projects.
I am truly honoured, for the second year in a row, to have my work accepted to the Rendezvous With Madness festival.
A trifecta of firsts for this creator (dramatic monologue written; theatrical production, staged and filmed; and, dramatic performance, live or filmed) "The Reluctant Messenger" is one part personal exposition, one part social commentary; and, one part plea to the audience for acceptance and compassion as WE are ALL called to engage in some sober reflection on our "way of life".
Originally performed "live" at the Workman Arts Open House Zoom event on June 26, 2020, the streamed performance itself was unavailable to edit and share. This long awaited, short film will premiere as part of the "Born To Be An Artist" shorts series in this year's Rendezvous With Madness festival on Sunday, November 5, 2023.
It will also be available to stream from the festival website from November 6-12.
More information and tickets can be found at: https://workmanarts.com/rwm-events/born-to-be-an-artist/
And, if you would like to show additional support for this and future works, plese feel free to make a donation.
