Something About Her

When life gives you lemons you have two choices, either suck them and be bitter or add sugar and water and make lemonade. I choose to make lemonade. I like to challenge myself in my writing and my latest challenge is writing for the stage. 
My play has been short-listed for production in the Claremorris Fringe Drama Festival 2014 which takes place on April 4th to the 11th in the Dalton Inn Hotel. There are two, 15 minute plays each night and the winner will be announced at the end of the festival. My play is called Something About Her.
Like I said writing plays for me is new. I started last Oct. it was I think, maybe Sept. But anyhow, I love it. 
Our mentor is John Sheehy of Callback Theatre production fame. John is the Theatre Artist in Residence for Co. Limerick (he is adorable and encouraging). I say, our, because I am joined by Marie O’Halloran, Mary Angland and Mary Ann Bartlett, enough to confuse poor John when we are all seated around the table. So wish me luck, who knows, I may be back with good news after April 11th. but for now I am thrilled to have reached the short-list.

P.S. One of my stories, The Treasure Chest, is in this month’s Ireland’s Own, St Patricks Day annual.
