Keketso and Dorothy read through the 3rd draft of my play “Two Women” this weekend. It’s finally getting into some decent shape (after frantic rewrites over the weekend.) I keep telling myself I should be better at this, faster, smarter, less prone to the mistakes and habits I keep falling into. But so it goes . . .
Interesting as the drafts are getting better the play becomes more controversial – people have stronger feelings about the characters and what should happens to them. “No, she shouldn’t leave!” “No, she can’t die like that!” Being a writer is kind of amazing – I’ve birthed two new begins into the world that now have to make their way.
The play will premiere in South Africa in July, 2015
