Thank you to all who have been following my “other” blog this past year on the chronicles of my thirty third year. It was a journey – and now I’m back on a single mission – to get back to the Wacky World of Witty Witting. To start us off – some information about a Wacky little play I wrote that will be up and running in Upstate Manhattan in just under two weeks. Rehearsals are going well – and I’m a bundle of nerves – which means something is happening! Looking forward to it. Thanks for reading! Amye

Audra is trapped both inside her mind and in her apartment with a mouse named Victor. Audra talks to Victor, Victor talks back. As she falls further down a rabbit hole of despair she leans on her one and only only one, Doris, for salvation. Both women on the brink of their fortieth birthdays, search for their cats to keep their loneliness away. As Victor continues to eat at Audra’s subconscious, a decision has to be made. Audra must choose to either live a life of isolation or embrace the love from the other misfits she meets along the way. As she continues to grow, she discovers the hope of Waiter, the innocence of Chester, and the chance of real love thru Doris and Benji. Audra’s internal battle brings together the most unlikely family and forces demons to finally rest…

36Hours Featuring *Michael Birch and Kerry Fitzgibbons
The blizzard has past but it is still a bit cold and snowy today in Manhattan. The perfect day to update my neglected website and share about two shows opening in TWO WEEKS down in the East Village.
36Hours is coming back with a reworked script – no major changes – but small important ones. Rumor has it that rehearsals have been exciting – and the show has a new beat to it. If you haven’t seen it come check it out.

While 36Hours is a Drama with some Witty moments – if you are looking for something to lighten your mood perhaps you would like to check out SISTERS GRIMM: FABLES OF THE STAGE – a collaboration with the amazing BRICKEN SPARACINO. My short play “Jack and the Giant” will be featured along with Bricken’s hilarious “Pointy the Starfish”.
“A hilarious look behind the curtain. Find out how Jack really met the Giant and what happens between the scenes of a traveling children’s theater troupe.”

I was honored to be featured on The United Stages website today! Check it out. I still have two more finals to conquer before I can start getting focused on these shows – but it will happen soon. I’m so grateful for all the wonderful collaborators in my life! This is going to a truly wonderful show! Woot! Amye
I wrote a little play about a skinny man meeting a Giant in an audition room. The skinny man will be played by a skinny actor named Ben, and the Giant will be played by a tall actor named Derby who will wear a fat suit. At least in my mind he will. But perhaps his vocals will be large enough. I now have to finish the script so my director, the amazing Bricken, can send it off to an awesome teenage boy who writes rad music. How lucky am I?
OK. So mark your calendars for Jack and the Giant! Information below.
The Hunter College Theatre club has chosen Create Me Pegasus as one of the plays they are going to showcase in a December production. Should be exciting! I’m grateful for the opportunity. Stay Tuned for more information! Amye
I’ve been working on a new full length play for grad school and it’s weird. I don’t know what it’s about – or if it sucks – of it it’s brilliant – I’m just thankful that I’m still writing it. It’s about a mouse, or not. It features a mouse, or does it? It’s about the shadows of the mind, or is it? It’s about black hole of loneliness and how we deal with it. It’s about living. It’s about dying. It’s about 120pages – at this moment. It’s long. It’s short. It’s funny. It’s sad. It’s being created and hopefully I’ll figure out what it’s about. As of today the title is – The Untitled Mouse Project. Upward and Onwards. Stay tuned for more updates. I will try to keep this site up better. If you want my daily activity you can always find out what happened during my days at http://www.mythirtythirdyear.com. Thanks for reading! Amye
