A couple of weeks ago, Dan and I made our way out to Fort Worth to catch the reading at Stage West of Larry Herold's play THE SPORTS PAGE. It was a nice day on Saturday for a drive that way, it had been a while for me, and Dan guided me through a DD scenario as we drove. I was surprised I didn't see orc carasses on the road, but no, it was only a black trash bag.
Larry won this reading through the Texas Playwriting Competition last fall and this spring (or winter rather) he had his play read by some of the luminaries of the DFW stage world and directed by the inimitable Jerry Russell.We don't have a lot of video from the reading itself because of Equity considerations but there are a lot of interviews and the talkback where you get to hear the audience reacting to the play after their first time hearing it. I know it's a longer one, but there are some real gems in there so be strong.
