I've set aside the current full-length play I've been laboring over (although, luckily, actual labor didn't go on this long without results). Instead I'm working on expanding the one-minute play that didn't get up in the Gone in 60 Seconds competition into a 10-minute, so that I can have another bash at Short & Sweet this year. Seeing as the first year I sank without a ripple, and the second year I got shortlisted, perhaps this year will be the victory year. The play already has a title: "Captain Tom Zombie and the Unlikely Shipmate." I think it sounds intriguing, don't you?
As You Like It, Act II Sc. 7
O worthy fool!
...in his brain,
Which is as dry as the remainder biscuit
After a voyage, he hath strange places cramm'd
With observation, the which he vents
In mangled forms. O that I were a fool!
I am ambitious for a motley coat.
