Off to a good start in 2011. I wrote pages 15 – 33 of The Temptation Show, my reality TV play I’m writing for some Members and Friends of Flux. We read the pages at Flux Sunday, and while they read well, I don’t think this draft is going to come out as close to right as other recent plays.
One challenge is developing empathy for the six characters in the house, because we see them primarily through Angel’s eyes, and her eyes are not particularly emapthetic.
Another challenge will be balancing the demands of a plot heavy play with the amount of information an audience can handle, a perennial issue for me.
Still, 18 pages is a great way to start 2011.
