"So, Bob, tell me what you do."
"I'm engaged in a multi-pronged, data-driven surfacing of best-practices for the diversifying of industry in the five boroughs with a concentration in Staten Island, following a successful pilot in the Bronx, with a special focus on the Brooklyn waterfront and how it relates to the ecosystem both in greening the delivery stream and in human interface terms.”
And thus was inspired The Bigsley Project, a play about work culture, workaholism, and the way work has co-opted the language of romance and wants your passion and commitment now. It's a farce about success, failure, and the razor-thin line between them. And next week, I'll be workshopping it at TheaterLab! For a whole glorious day! My favorite thing is rehearsal, so I've gifted myself a full day of it--read through, Viewpoints, staging, throwing props around, the works.
The Bigsley Project has had several public readings with wonderful actors at music stands, but this is a farce, with standing on desks and and attempting to hide in a glass-walled expanse and an epic paperclip chain and the potential for throwing things and music stands ain't it. Director Mikaela Kafka will put the people through their paces. I will probably rewrite most of the play in pencil in the margins (if you worked with me on 2Y20M you've seen me do it). Takeo Hori will document the whole glorious mess. I hope to have lots more to share from The Bigsley Project soon.
