The Walking Plays, presented by Lyric Stage Company, are now live. This audio play project explores the private moments we have in public, following characters in their journeys around Downtown Boston. You can walk and listen or just enjoy at home. A character from each play shows up in the subsequent play, so they’re all connected to each other. Start with David Valdes’s On Paying Attention, then listen to mine, Monster in the Sky. And look for more in the spring from such awesome Boston playwrights as Liana Asim, Melinda Lopez, Miranda ADEkoje, and Pat Gabridge. Big thanks to everyone involved–they came out great.
It’s been many moons since I’ve seen my work live onstage…or anyone else’s either. Fortunately we artists are endlessly adaptable creatures. I’ve seen a number of online productions making the best of what the virtual platforms have to offer, and I’m happy to say a couple of my own works are available in digital form.
