Well, this was definitely the right way to return to Flux Sunday, with a full and vibrant group of veterans and newcomers. The plays were also all strong this time round, and I left thrilled to be back doing Flux Sundays again. There were many highlights, but as always, I offer these few to prompt you to leave behind your own:

-The audience reaction to my unexpected stage kiss in The Rainy Season

-Anna and Emily rocking the dudes of The Fields of Blue and Glow

-Alyssa’s palpable frustration at the games of The Iron Hours

-Marianne’s parting sound of disgust at her mother in Adam’s new play

-Ken’s delightful Soviet in Magellenica, not to mention an adorable Norweigan from Matt Archambault meeting cute with fellow Antarctic scientist, Alisha

If you were there, what moments did you walk away with? And welcome to our new Flux Sundayers!

    Lynn and I talked for hours afterward about how strong all the actors were and how we wanted to read the rest of all the plays from the scenes presented. There were a lot of individual acting moments that blew me away. Yes, your kiss :), Matthew Trumbell’s embittered private school teacher, the loopy drunk girliness of the actress who played my sister, Elsie, how everyone in The Iron Hours was able to stage Zoomie Zoomie so fast, the unsettling menace the actress who played the long lost friend from the Bronx in The Fields Of Blue and Glow portrayed, like uh-oh, he’s here to destroy this man-slowly, Pete Boisvert’s smart and imaginative staging of Magellenica and most of all, just the energy in the room, which was fantastic. Everyone had such great spirit, smarts and talent. It was a joy to be there and take part, thanks!
